The following is an excerpt from the IBIE show daily:

Rich Hoskins, III, IBIE Committee vice-chairman, Colborne Corp., commented on the increased breadth of the show. “It is every bit as good or more than the past, and much of that is because of the concentrated and innovative marketing campaign through our marketing partner, mdg (Marketing Design Group). Through Kimberly Hardcastle-Geddes at mdg, we worked well beyond our prior efforts and beyond traditional markets.”

The results are evident. This year, 167 new companies will be exhibiting at the show, a 25 percent increase in new exhibitors, many of which are from ancillary markets.
