Getting ready for ASIS 2015

Wednesday, September 23, 2015

ASIS is next week. I'll be heading to Anaheim, Calif. this weekend because, of course, the show begins before the show begins.

Among my first events is a Sunday afternoon tour of Paramount Studios to check out their Sureview System.

I'll be at the show all three days, Sept. 28-Sept. 30 and I am looking forward to getting some exercise on the floor running from one meeting to another.

I do have a couple of open times--like 30 minutes each day on Monday, Tues. and Wednesday. I reserved them for compelling last-minute invites. If you've got something really cool that you think my readers--the integrators--will really care about, let me know what it is and why my readers need to know too via email by EOD Thursday. Thank you!

I'll be checking out the ASIS Accolade award winners. Here's a link to the award-winning products and booth numbers.
