The International LCT Show Is Almost Here

Posted on January 23, 2013 by - Also by this author

It’s about education, networking and the future of the industry.
 
It is hard to believe that the giant 2013 International LCT Show is just around the corner. It wasn’t until I made my Super Bowl party plans that I realized that I either need to get myself to Las Vegas after the Super Bowl or head out first thing in the morning on Monday.
 
If you were not planning on attending, there is still time for you to jump onboard and even if you don’t pre-register, you can register onsite and show up at the last minute. 
 
The show offers something for everyone. It doesn’t matter if you have been in the business for two years or 20 years. The exhibit hall is packed full of new cars, buses, vans, trolleys and all the other things you need to operate. This includes insurance, reservations software, cleaning supplies, marketing materials and so much more. If you never attend any of the classes, this part of the Show is the most spectacular of them all.
 
If you do hit the exhibit hall, please stop by the LCT booth and say hello to me. You will find me there during most exhibit hall hours. You also will find our CEO, Ty Bobit, our publisher, Sara Eastwood-McLean, our editor-in-chief, Martin Romjue, and Michael Campos, our social media guru. We are always interested in meeting face-to-face with our readers to learn more about what you want to read. If you have a story you would like me to write, come discuss it with me.
 
If you are interested in learning more about the industry, we have classes from how to market your company on social media to human resources issues such as employee timekeeping and the laws. Speaking of laws, they are constantly changing. Educational seminars are a great way to keep abreast of changes that may affect your business. In some cases, fines for mistakes are as high as $25,000 and ignorance to a law is not something that will get you out of the fine. I think you will agree that the cost to attend the Show is a great investment if you can avoid a fine for simply not knowing about something.
 
The social activities abound with plenty of networking opportunities to meet new people, break bread, share a cocktail and share information. You are not alone in this and your peers struggle with the same issues. Come and be embraced by your peers. Oh, and if you’re a newbie, come to the First Timer’s Orientation meeting. We’ll make you feel at home. You can meet the entire LCT staff at this meeting.
 
In this case, what goes on in Vegas does not stay in Vegas. It is take-home value that will improve your operations. See you in Vegas, baby!!!
