ASIS 2017 Cuts Day 3 Exhibits to 3 Hours

Author: John Honovich, Published on Jun 14, 2017

The 3rd day of major trade shows are always the worst attended.

And with shows with poor traffic, like ASIS over the past few years, day 3 has been fairly silent, with sparse attendees and exhibitors checking their phones or talking to each other.

Now, ASIS 2017 is making a bold move, cutting the 3rd day's exhibits from 5 hours down to 3.

In this note, we examine the pros and cons of this move.
