Tradeshow 101 – E:2 – About Plus Studios

Congratulations to all of us who have made it through a full month of stay-at-home statewide order. If you are like most people, it is probably getting harder and harder for you to shelter in place. The question of “how much longer” is top of mind right now. Luckily, there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and we look forward to the day that we reopen Nevada and Las Vegas to get back to business soon, and safely.

Although business must go on, safety for our team, clients and vendors come first. We are learning to adjust to what is becoming the new normal. Whether it is the 6’ social distancing, the mask or gloves, the constant hand washing and sanitizing, extra cleaning, virtual meetings, and presentations, we are managing those changes. How long will we have to take these extra precautions, that remains to be seen, but better safe than sorry.

What we do know is that we need to continue to stay in front of you, our clients. You need to know that we believe tradeshows will still be here and will continue to be relevant. Virtual connections and experiences will more than likely continue to rise and can only enhance the tradeshow experience as we know it.

You are probably seeing that most shows have been rescheduled to the beginning of Summer and Fall of this year. Until the Associations announce otherwise, we need to get to planning! In order to help you get in the planning mode, we have launched a Series of Educational Workshop. Our very own Tradeshow 101 with new episodes released every Wednesday at 10am PST on our new YouTube Channel: PLUS STUDIOS LLC Please subscribe and tune in every Wednesday. We would love your comments and feedback.
