Or at least that is what I am told, being from Wisconsin I think our spring is delayed a couple of weeks, maybe months, we may skip it and go straight to summer. What does that mean in our world Trade Show season! This year was tricky, AAAE annual event and the Snow Symposium are the exact same week. As I am sure many of you are doing, divide and conquer. We don't have a large staff on Airport Business but we do have other magazines in our organization in aviation. So for those of you attending the Snow Symposium make sure to give a warm welcome to the editor of Ground Support Worldwide, Josh Smith and publisher of AMT, Lester Craft. They are going to be coming around and talking to everyone. For those of you attending AAAE, well you get to see the always fantastic Airport Business staff. We look forward to seeing all of you at all the upcoming shows. April 2018 airportbusiness 9
