TradeshowGuy Monday Morning Coffee, May 24, 2021: Shep Hyken

Shep Hyken’s new book, “I’ll Be Back,” is still months away, but it’s not to early to talk about it, or to catch up with him on how he and his team managed their way through the pandemic. Shep always has a lot to say, and it’s good:

TradeshowGuy Monday Morning Coffee, April 5, 2021: Time Crunch

It’s something I’ve been pondering for several months: making some modest changes to the frequency of TradeshowGuy Monday Morning Coffee. That time has finally arrived, and on this week’s episode I go into what that means.

This week’s ONE GOOD THING: The changing of the seasons.

TradeshowGuy Monday Morning Coffee, March 29, 2021: Jeff Quade

One of the ongoing challenges I find with exhibitors is working with show services. There seems to be some sort of mystery about what they do and don’t do, how much they charge, how to save money on it, and much more. I caught up with Jeff Quade, EVP of Exhibitions at GES to talk about all of these topics and more. We started with the news that shows are moving back into Las Vegas.

Find GES here.

This week’s ONE GOOD THING: Mr. Mercedes, the TV series based on the Stephen King book.

TradeshowGuy Monday Morning Coffee, March 22, 2021: Specialized vs. General Knowledge

Over the last week I’ve been pondering the differences between having very specialized knowledge or training, such as being a commercial jet pilot or brain surgeon, versus having more generalized knowledge, such as knowing how to use MS Word, or posting things online. I got to the point where I decided that I’d ruminate on it for awhile for this week’s vlog-slash-podcast:

TradeshowGuy Monday Morning Coffee, March 15, 2021: Rama Beerfas

Last April I had Rama Beerfas of Lev Promotions on the show to talk about how the pandemic had affected her world. Thought it was time to check in again and see what has changed in the meantime. Yes, at least some things have changed, including the challenges of promotional product vendors to bring items in from across the sea. Check it out:

TradeshowGuy Monday Morning Coffee, March 8, 2021: Too Many Choices

We’re overwhelmed with choices on a daily basis. How many decisions do we make, on average, in a single day? The answer may surprise you! On this week’s TradeshowGuy Monday Morning Coffee, I take a look at the decision-making process on choices large and small:

This week’s ONE GOOD THING: Audio-Technica AT202USB microphone.


TradeshowGuy Monday Morning Coffee, March 1, 2021: Katina Rigall Zipay

I had heard of the group Women in Exhibition, bur frankly admit that that’s about all I knew: that it existed. So I caught up with Katina Rigall Zipay, Creative Director at Classic Exhibits, and someone’s who’s been intimately involved in Women in Exhibition for years. We had a fun conversation and I learned a lot. No doubt you will, too:

Women in Exhibition has a LinkedIn group you can find here.

And check out the Women in Exhibition Virtual Experience here.

This week’s ONE GOOD THING: Carl Hiaasen’s “Squeeze Me.”


TradeshowGuy Monday Morning Coffee, February 22, 2021: Classic Conversations

Here at TradeshowGuy Exhibits, we’ve had the pleasure of working with Classic Exhibits, one of the top handful of exhibit manufacturers in the country, for over a decade. When the pandemic set it, it didn’t take long for them to do their best to adjust to the new reality. One of the things that Classic Exhibits implemented last year was a monthly conversation with distributors. On this week’s TradeshowGuy Monday Morning Coffee, I sat down with two of the moderators of the Classic Conversations, Tom Beard and Harold Mintz, to learn more about how those came about:
