Postcards from the show

Dear Bud, Wow! You missed a rocking Show in Chicago! Remember when I told you I was going to McCormick Place March 16-19 for the National Plant Engineering and Management Show? Well, this was definitely the place to be! Excellent exhibits, conferences, and demonstrations of all the products and services affecting the plant engineering function were available in this one spot. I joined nearly 24,000 other plant engineering and management professionals in walking countless miles checking out about 800 exhibitors. Let me tell you, my tired feet and legs were a small price to pay for what I learned. I'm sending along some postcards of a few of the booths, speakers, and activities so that you can see what you missed. You should start planning now to be at the next NPEM Show. Write down these dates: March 15-18, 1999, so you can be there next year! Lou Nearly 350 people attended a black-tie reception at Chicago's Ritz-Carlton Hotel to honor the winners in Plant Engineering magazine's 10th annual Product of the Year contest.
