This issue includes the opinions of 10 industry experts on augmented and virtual reality. So we asked members of our LinkedIn group:
How have you used these technologies in your organizations' trade shows and events?
The results of our 2017 RFI/RFP Survey, featured in this issue, shed some light on the often complex and convoluted new-build process. To provide additional clarity on the issue of vendor selection, we asked our Twitter followers: What tip would you give exhibit managers who are issuing their first RFPs?
"RFP tip: Always start with a qualifying round to weed out the number of bidders (5 max). Quality beats quantity." @intotheoceancom
"Visit the exhibit houses you are sending RFPs to. Talk to existing and past clients of the firm. Look at their rental options. Talk!"
"Be concise, thorough, and exacting. Ask for creative plans, not numbers." @shecubfan
