Greetings to readers everywhere!

My hat’s off to the ECN editorial staff for the incredible content in the May print edition. From McCormick Place management changes to announcements of convention center expansions and grand openings (YES…build it and they will come!) this issue is rich with important information that no serious industry professional should be without.

Also in May, we have additional follow-up articles related to the EXHIBITOR Show. These items include student designers getting a first-hand look at the show floor and some creative marketing tactics employed by larger exhibit builders to compete for the attention of show attendees.

This month’s “B” section hasin-depth coverage of the many new options and trends in floor coverings. Flooring is truly the “Fifth Wall,” as so eloquently put by Dave Walens, president of Brumark. We also talked to many floor covering experts and looked at different aspects and uses, including what to expect in Europe and new programs for carpet recycling.

This issue also includes all our regular features and news, in addition to what I consider the best bunch of columnists in the industry.

HAPPY READING….until the next issue….I’ll see you on the web!

PS: Be sure to check out our recently announced BOSS EXHIBIT AWARDS program on page A10. We can never do enough to celebrate the many talented, creative designers in our industry! While on the subject of design, check out Dave Linderman’s piece on page B8 about what makes a designer great.
