We begin planning for the next years show immediately after the current years show ends... that's right, just days (perhaps even hours) after this show, we will already be talking about and envisioning things for the 2011 show. It's a big deal and it takes a lot of work. We ship a ton of stuff to Las Vegas and we take a lot of staff. We work our tails off two full days before the show even opens just setting things up. Then, the people come. For four days we're on our feet from 9am to 6pm talking, demonstrating and selling. Even after the show each day, our work is not done. We take manufacturers and customers out to dinner. We attend receptions and awards shows. Staying busy is not a problem during this trip.
To give you an idea of how this all looks, here's some pictures I found from the 2009 show.
