“We surpassed last year’s attendance substantially,” said Ted Coene, co-president of Group C Communications Inc., producer of the show. “The overall increase is commendable, particularly in view of the events on Sept. 11. The show’s success is a tribute to the nation’s economic recovery and a very balanced mix of exhibitors covering every aspect of the facility as well as a comprehensive lineup of educational seminars and networking events.”
A highlight of the week included the Keynote Panel Discussion Breakfast titled “The Energy Crisis.” The discussion touched on such hot topics as deregulation, the Enron scandal, and the rolling blackouts in California last year.
The next TFM Show will be held at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL, April 9-11, 2003. For more information, visit www.tfmshow.com (website).
