*****SHOW UPDATE****

Washington, D.C. is back in business. The exhibition floor, with 40 key players in the market, is ready (and looks fantastic) and almost 200 people made it to our opening conference session yesterday, despite a government shutdown and snow storms!

We look forward to meeting you.
