The Show Will Go On

I've been involved in trade-show management for more than 25 years, and Karen Klein's article ("Show Business," Cover Story, August 16) was the first I heard that "the exhibition industry prematurely predicted its own demise earlier this decade because of the Web." Perhaps some organizers were concerned that the Internet would hurt trade shows. However, while I don't claim to speak for everyone in the industry, I think I can safely say that most show producers did not consider the demise of trade shows a forgone conclusion. As Yogi Berra might have said: "It ain't over till it's overand who said it's over, anyway?"
