The Buzz is the sound heard by companies in Florida planning to attend the ATX South and related shows in Orlando, March 16th & 17th.
"The show has been sold out for some time now," said Lonnie Gonzales, Group Sales Manager for UBM-Canon. No show sales company has been able to say that for many years. With Disneyworld, Universal Studios and Ripley's museum among other attractive draws, the destination makes for an easier decision for many southeastern travelers.
Like all of the Canon shows this one will also include the MD&M Show, South Pack, Design & Mfg., Plastec, Aerocon and the Green Mfg shows. "This bundling effect is one reason why the shows are so great…there is a nice cross pollination of the attendees." I'll give credit to Joe Pontonio, Sales Manager for the ATX show for the nice play on words.
We at QC Industries are no different. Having a show in Orlando is what we've been lobbying for with the Canon-UBM team for years. I have a sense that this show may just bring more than the normal regional show in Charlotte or Minneapolis. Somewhat like a Las Vegas show destination, Orlando attendees will want to bring their families. This way all of the exhibitors will enjoy the show buzz!
