Why and How
“I have to admit, I love lists. But even though I’ve written several books on trade show marketing myself, I had NO idea there could be 66 helpful and fun lists like Timothy has compiled! This book is extremely helpful for anyone planning their next (or first) show, as well as an invaluable reference tool on your bookshelf.

“We shape our tools, and thereafter our tools shape us,” Marshall McLuhan said. With this tool, you can shape your tradeshow effort to reach superhero status.*
