Comment Benefits of Trade Shows (Score 4, Insightful) 105

There are two benefits for me for going to trade shows: (1) Learning quickly what's new in the trade. In a good trade show, you can get a good demonstration of a new product, and sometimes you can even talk to one of the developers. (2) Networking. I often run into former colleagues at trade shows, which gives us opportunities to update one another and re-establish contacts.

I have a theory that it's impossible to prove anything, but I can't prove it.
