As a long-time SPAR attendee and what some may call an industry veteran, I have been both amazed at the growth of the conference over the last 11 years and a little disappointed in our industry as a whole.

Now that SPAR 2014 is in the books, I thought we’d take a look at what I found to be the most interesting things from a very full week. In fact, it’s getting so I need a couple of days off to recover after these conventions (not that I actually did, BTW!). Between breakfast meetings, 11 hours of exhibition booth management, as many presentations as I can sneak in, dinner meetings, and the occasional night cap, I think I averaged 18-20 hours per day “on the clock”. Good thing I like what I do...
