A different kind of show

EDS is a different kind of trade show -- it's more about forging partnerships than selling products. It takes a bit of hustle to get into the suites and find out what's coming down the pike in terms of products. Nice work, Rob.

@Charles: Yes but forcing partnerships means indirect marketing isn't it ? That is the new trend these days. You do not market directly but approach via different modes.

I suppose you're correct in calling it indirect marketing, fdos. That doesn't bother me, per se, but it seems like a foreign concept to me. Usually, I walk around at trade shows and handle the products. I'm accustomed to the direct supplier-engineer relationship.

These days it is in. As business community find agents or distributors in far areas to handle their product. So that there presence is easily felt every where.

That would be an interesting trade show to see. I would be interested in learning more about the Ethernet switches and the right-angle PCI-E connectors.
