#ExpoChat topic for Wednesday April 24th 3pm ET.
The archive of today’s chat is now available for download – Unions-and-Trade-Shows
This week’s chat motto will be think first, then type.
Dana Freker Doody (@TheExpoGroup) will be moderating this week’s chat.
We will be joined on April 24 chat by some Tweeps representing unions. If you have other questions please comment below so we can work them in.
Q1 Has the role of labor unions changed? (what jobs are they doing? Are those jobs changing?)
Q2 Have the unions changed? (procedures, ideology, value proposition)
Q3 How do labor unions help the industry?
Q4 How do labor unions present challenges to the industry?
Q5 Could the industry exist without unions?
Q6 Should the trade show industry support rule changes (like McCormick Place) that bring down costs for exhibitors?
Q7 What will be the future role of labor unions as the industry changes because of the encroachment from digital and other competition to the industry?
Please watch before the chat to put you in a cooperative mood! Who doesn’t love classic Sesame Street???
