EXHIBITING at a show is a lot of work. Admittedly, it’s not so tough on the essentialARB team as it can be for others. At least we don’t have a wealth of machinery to unload or a hundred forms to fill out to allow us to demo.

Even so, it can involve a lot of travel, packing and unpacking for a long few days on your feet, meeting attendees and taking subscriptions while also trying to cover what’s happening on the other stands.
