SETC day 1ish

So I'm in Atlanta at SETC, one of my favorite trade shows of the year. It's more like a family reunion than a trade show, with some of these folks having been involved in this conference longer than I've been alive. I've come to this trade show every year since 1994, and it's a lot of the same faces each year.

So I absolutely love the fact that I'm stuck in my hotel room with a friggin' sinus infection sick as a motherfucker when I'd much rather be downstairs drinking in the bar with my buddies. I'm not. I'm managing to get through my booth duty and the workshops I have to teach, but that's about all I've got in me.

Today I taught a workshop on troubleshooting a lighting system, and it was pretty well-received. I need tonight to be conscious enough to study lines for a little while and prep for my workshop tomorrow, on how to select the right light board for your facility. I like these workshops because they position our company as experts in the field, and get our faces out in front of customers that may not normally come by the booth.

Tired now, I think I'm ordering room service and taking some drugs to help me sleep.

That sucks your sick, and you missed some great weather up until today.

Are you still going to CC's tonight?

I'm not sure where the conference is, but I work in midtown, lunch maybe?

I have always wondered where I could learn the fine art of lightboard selection...
