Industry Hits Jackpot in Las Vegas – Were You There?

Future trade shows may not be business as usual but that's not necessarily a bad thing. This podcast is sponsored by AAPEX.

The drought has ended and the return to trade shows has happened. AAPEX 2021 is in the books. And whether business as usual has now become business as possible, it was great to reconnect with the industry in Las Vegas.

By all accounts, AAPEX 2021 exceeded the expectations of exhibitors and attendees. Business was booming, training was exception and, of course, the food was outstanding. Vic Tarasik, one of the architects of Joe’s Garage, talks with ShopOwner editor Doug Kaufman about the bright spots we saw this year and the even brighter expectations for 2022.

This episode of Talking Shop With ShopOwner is presented by AAPEX 2021.
