Learning from Each Other: Peer2Peer Improvement Panel
Exhibiting is an iterative process. Every time you participate in a trade show, you can (and should) improve your performance. In this session, you'll work with a panel of your peers to develop improvement strategies you can apply to continuously improve your shows. You will:
 •  Listen to a panel of your brand-side peers as they share their biggest accomplishments-and their biggest challenges
 •  Outline a process to identify opportunities for improvement to use once you return home
 •  "Choose your own adventure" by selecting a topic (shared by one of the panelists)
 •  Collaborate with the panelists to brainstorm actionable improvement strategies
