It’s no secret that Millennials, or GenY, now make up a major part of today’s workforce. Yet that doesn’t seem to hold true when you look at the population of many trade shows. Why is that?

One way to increase the number of GenYs participating in trade shows is to demonstrate the value of face-to-face and engaging with many highly-qualified prospects in a short amount of time.
