I’m a tradeshow junkie. Love going there, have attended many of them, oh so many, from The National Stationery Show to Atlanta’s Mart, Home Shows, to Las Vegas Market, you name it. What I love most about the tradeshows is how much trendsetting power they have. Every time I go to a tradeshow, I feel so special, I feel like I’ll be the first to find out what’s the newest. It’s so fascinating to watch fads and trends and how fast they come and go.
I often play a game of guessing and trying to forecast what new products will survive, which ones will have a fast and short life and which ones will have a long existence and develop many variations. It’s my job, technically work, but to be honest… it’s not work when you love what you do!
