Unfortunately, for now, "live" audio shows are on hold...and when people feel safe, I have no doubt they will be back. In the mean time, Joe Mariano has a pretty clever idea to utilize "online access" and give manufacturers a way to promote their products and get their name out there. And it is likely that the magazine guys will write about it which will give further publicity to the participants.
Do, I think it will work? Hey, I'm the guy that thought Amazon was a fluke.
I want to support Joe for trying something new and I want to support the manufacturers who need to expand their market and their customer base and hopefully get some orders.
So, I'm in, bought my ticket and I'm hoping for a great show.
