REAL TIME WITH... IPC APEX EXPO 2021 SHOW & TELL MAGAZINE I I-CONNECT007 43 Shaughnessy: Well, I hope so. ere are peo- ple that I've known for 10 or 20 years that I've never seen outside of a trade show. So I'll be glad to get that back. Hazelett: I call those "location-based," "event- based," or my "trade show friends." Do you ever hang out with them outside of trade shows? No, but that doesn't make them any less enjoyable people. I remember meeting someone at APEX EXPO last year who retired from the industry, and he came to the show with his wife so she could meet all his trade show friends. He's out of the industry, but he still came back, saying, "I wanted to introduce my wife to the people I've worked with for the last 30 years." Shaughnessy: If I retired, I'd probably still go to trade shows. Hopefully, this year we'll get back to live events. Hazelett: And if not, definitely next year. Next year seems to be a much more promising prospect. It looks likely that we'll have APEX EXPO in-person in 2022. Shaughnessy: All right. anks for talking with me. Hazelett: ank you, Andy.
