It’s Friday in (cool) warm Atlanta! Is it Spring? We’re not sure, but we’re happy to be moving into our trade show spring season for Operations Summit 2018 in Columbus, Ohio and MODEX 2018 here in Atlanta. We hope to meet you if you will be attending either of these shows. Feel free to reach out to Bruce Strahan to set up a time at either show for a quick introduction or hello!
