Interbike, our industry’s trade show, is big. Really big. Multiple floors at a huge convention center in Las Vegas, and I had less than one day to take in what most deal with in three. Less than one because, while the show opens at 9am & closes at 6pm, I had two hours NBDA (National Bicycle Dealer Association) booth duty, greeting possible new members but mostly telling people where registration was.
Most years I have more time, and usually go out to lunch with some dealers that I only get a chance to spend time with once or twice a year. This time, I didn’t have a chance to get away for even a short period of time. Lunch was simply not on option, but you gotta eat if you’re gonna keep moving. What to do? You’ll find the answer below.
