After a very successful PLASA, I would like to thank a few people.  First, I want to thank Sam from our CHAUVET® Europe office for being the consummate professional during the buildup, the show, and tear down, as well as programming a great booth. I know I can count on you. Great job!

Secondly, I want to thank the crew from VME for bringing it all together at the end and getting us all of the kit we needed to build up the booth (and for all of the good humor).  P.S. I am going to work out the comfortable rigging harness for you guys for next year.

Last, but not least, I need to thank the tireless efforts of our CHAUVET® Europe and international sales team, along with our U.S.-based tradeshow coordinators, for bringing all of the marketing, sales, and general good attitudes that I know I can depend on.

Great job everyone! Looking forward to next year. (Last year at Earls Court, I think.)
