When? Another Crash Indicator

Trade Shows are tracked for performance and o verall they are doing very well, just like in...  2007?!?! 
After a big increase in the first quarter of this year, the performance of the business-to-business trade show industry, as measured by the Center for Exhibition Industry Research’s Total Index, remained relatively strong during the second quarter of 2015, posting a year-on-year gain of 3.8 percent.
This growth is the second highest rate since the second quarter of 2007 and also marked the 20th consecutive quarter of year-on-year growth.
"The second-quarter results are very promising,” said CEIR Economist Allen Shaw, Ph.D., Chief Economist for Global Economic Consulting Associates.
Well, the eocnomy tanked after that.  And trade shows  had a hard time.  But a 25% decrease in economic activity means ther eis still 75% going on.  It all gets down to running a trade show booth right, something I will be teaching this year long with my other courses.
