These changes became must-do, and must-do now to meet evolving needs,” commented Joe Khayyat, Mid Am executive director. “The changes to the trade show floor are meant to create a more meaningful discovery experience for buyers looking to jump start their spring buying season and for exhibitors looking to spend meaningful time with serious buyers.”

Mid Am 2013 will showcase, brand-new, attendee requested features, including:
• A product-segmented floor plan
• An education theater right on the show floor

These enhancements help me convert my clients' visions into reality and help increase my bottom line.”
