Where can you find dozens of cabling products and systems available for your perusal, with the opportunity to get more-detailed information if you'd like? A few places, actually. One place is the lengthy set of pages toward the back of this month's issue. Another place will be at the BICSI Fall Exhibition in San Antonio, Texas taking place September 10 through 12.
It's not a coincidence that you'll find this information in both places. We reached out to the companies and organizations that will exhibit at the BICSI show and asked them to share with us, so we could share with you, what they'll have on display in their booths. We were pleased with the response, so keep flipping for the opportunity to see 12 pages filled with what's on deck at BICSI. For those of you who will attend the show, we hope you'll find the section to be a worthwhile preview, and we hope it prompts some meaningful discussions with product and system providers. Each organization's booth number is listed so you'll know where to find them.
Also if you'll attend (or if you're at the conference and expo right now as you read this), please stop by and see us. We'll be at Booth 403 throughout the exhibition times on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
Of course we realize not everyone can attend such a gathering. So we made the "BICSI preview" section interactive to an extent. For those of you who receive and read this magazine in digital format, each description contains a live link to a web page where you can find more information on the specific product line, or on the company or organization. For the stalwarts who like the feel of glossy paper in their hands and don't mind ink smudges here and there, so prefer to receive the magazine printed and snail-mailed, we've included the web address for each organization. Not exactly "interactive," but I believe the collection of products and systems described on those 12 pages can open the door to useful and productive interactions between you the reader, and some of the solutions providers serving our industry today.
If I don't see you at the BICSI show, I hope you'll consider letting me, and your peers, see some of the work you have accomplished. Our online "must-see photos" section has no shortage of train-wreck cabling messes. But it also includes makeover images, displaying before-and-after photos of cabling nightmares met and conquered. If you deserve some bragging rights for your work, email them to me. I, and others, are eager to see what you've accomplished.
