This is the exhibit area where you can see, hear and handle what is discussed in the workshops. Manufacturer engineers, sales managers, and regional rep firms will provide literature and/or samples for you to take with you. Note there are extensive "unopposed" times dedicated to this exhibit area... so workshops and the product expo do not compete for your attention!
