    Away we go

    The year 2015 is just a few weeks old, but you’ve likely been to at least one trade show already. Depending upon what part of the business you’re in, you may have been to three or four by now.

    5 Ways 2015 Will be Different

    It’s a strange custom, don’t you think, that we all truly believe that with the changing of a calendar page, the world suddenly becomes a different place? Strange indeed, but who am I to contest it? So, in no particular order I offer up five big changes I see for the industry. 1. Same Day Delivery. From a futuristic concept to an occasional test to more widespread-but-still-limited use, immediate delivery of merchandise is going to explode in 2015.
