Should I Stay or Should I Go?

by Angie Ash, EVP Well, here we are with another JCK show under our belts. After going to this show for years and years, can I get an amen that there’s no place like home once the whirlwind of Vegas comes to its final stop? Dorothy definitely got that right. Every year, as exhibitors, we approach the JCK...
