MIC’s Serving Up Hope Luncheon Raises $30,000+ for Food Bank of the Rockies

Trade Show Booths and A Breath of Fresh Air

I’m on the plane back from Las Vegas after an exciting few days at IMEX and I’m still buzzing from the experience of meeting so many suppliers from around the country and the world. Walking the floor at the Sands Conference Center is a heady experience, with so many different colors, textures and sounds coming at you from so many angles. I scheduled several appointments ahead of time, but I left plenty of time to just wander. It’s how I like to experience things best, seeing what hits me and encourages me to stop and talk for a while.
