A Dose of Optimism

I’ve been to many tradeshows over the years. Probably just about as many as our loyal readers, and I have to say this year’s ASIS was probably about the best ever.
I was skeptical about a lot of things, among which was being in Chicago and the transportation to and from the conference site.
I just want to tip my weathered baseball cap to the organizers and event planners at ASIS for another great show. The transportation was seamless, and for all that the seamier side of Chicago is, I didn’t see any challenges or disruptions.
Well done ASIS team.
I also noted a large amount of optimism all three days during the show. Of course, there are naysayers; some who might not have been happy, but for the most part the aisles were full of industry professionals asking the right questions, and getting the right answers.
Next year the show heads to Atlanta. For those of you who like to eat during ASIS, here is a note of interest. One of my five sons is a chef in Atlanta. He is really good at what he does and if you’re interested in a great meal, I can make a recommendation.
I look forward to seeing you next year in Atlanta.
