I have met with suppliers across the country in the past couple of weeks — from Vancouver (BC) to Chicago to the east coast. To a person they are happy. Business is good. In fact in many cases GREAT. We got a news release from Skidata — they are having their best year ever. And people in Wisconsin and Seattle tell me that they are frankly sold out.
This is great news. It means our industry is really hot. As one said to me just last week: "If you can’t make a buck in this economy, you can’t make a buck."
