AUSA 2016 Day 3: It's Over


AUSA 2016 Day 3

It’s over. With a mixture of relief, pride and a sore back, we are now packing up. I am sitting in the conference room writing this in the sincere hope that I am not discovered and shamed into helping pack up the gear. Our exhibit company (a shout-out here to CTS; Capitol Tradeshow Services) was terrific and this booth was not only sharp throughout, but here they are helping out and assuring us that the booth they built for us was all taken care of. Still, the demo is all ours and those three big crates look mighty foreboding.

I have to say that in my many, many years of doing shows, this one was really good. We got every meeting we were shooting for, gathered valuable new insights and learned a lot. But most of all, we got to see so many old friends and make so many new ones. We pushed out our sparkling Abaco Systems brand in grand style and strongly reinforced our message that we are engaged with our Army customer, listening, innovating, feeding back innovation, delivering quality, not in words but in deeds. This is what our customer asks; that we be mission ready always.

My thanks to the number of our folks that made this show a rousing success. Thanks to our friends for their kindness and a special thanks to our customers that have received our message so well.
