What is so great about IMEX America? Well I can tell you from my perspective which you could say was biased since IMEX Group is a sponsor of the MeetingsPodcast. But I will say it was a really great time for the Grass Shack team. We once again recorded interviews from the floor so you can get their opinons. Our new startup company AVforPlanners had more than 60 appointments which was amazing for us. We connected with old friends and made new ones on the tradeshow floor.
Some of the people we recorded for the podcast all talked about the same things. Opportunity to talk to existing clients, new clients, driving business, building trust, making relationships at this very well run show. Again since IMEX sponsors the MeetingsPodcast our view might be biased but if you haven’t gone yet I think you should listen to what these attendees and exhibitors said.
