I used to work for a company that deals with technology item when I was back in Malaysia. That was like more than 10 years ago. I remember we were required to attend trade shows around the country.
It was fun as we get to stay at the hotel the night before so we could be at the site very early in the morning to set up the trade show displays & trade show exhibits. I would be the one whom put out the brochures and flyers. I love meeting the potential clients whom came by our table to ask questions. And sometimes there were free lunches too.
