— Marian Calabro,
I was delighted to meet so many potential vendors and be exposed to a network of new media.
— Victor Couto, Retro Report
I love this show because it is not too big, and I get a chance to talk with all the reps I work with but rarely meet in person. The lunch is an added benefit that is greatly appreciated.
