64: Trade Shows and virtual, how well do they mix ft Nick Aldinger (IBL Events)


Almost to the date, beginning of 2020 I was sitting down, in my studio, with IBL Events co-founder, Anna Marie Aldinger recording Episode #10 and discussing trade shows and the news of this new virus that we didn’t know much about at the time… How much has our world has changed since then? 

And so, circling back on the show today I have Nick Aldinger, the CEO of IBL Events, one of Idaho’s largest producers of trade shows and conferences, and we get to answer that question, as well as explore a few interesting topics during today’s conversation, such as leadership lessons learned during challenging times, embracing change and finding a new business stream during a time when most event organizers, especially in the tradeshow space, struggled to stay afloat, and how do trade shows perform in the virtual event space.
