A lot of people these days are saying that trade shows aren’t what they used to be. That may be so; however that way of thinking certainly can’t be applied when regarding the recently concluded PMA Fresh Summit in Anaheim. I was lucky enough to have attended, and let me say right off, it was without a doubt one of the best shows I have been to in recent years.
From the very beginning, with hundreds of attendees standing outside the show floor doors waiting for entrance, up until post close, when building maintenance turned down the lights on exhibitors who were still milling about, the show was abuzz.
Now I can’t says how much business was actually accomplished, but just speaking with attendees and exhibitors, I can safely say I was not the only one impressed with Fresh Summit.
I, for one, am already looking forward to visiting Orlando for Fresh Summit 2010.
