High End Show Munich 2016: Day 4, Part 6

Article by WL Low

It just after lunch and I am trying to make up for lost time. More than 900 exhibitors in 4 days is quite a daunting task. Most seasoned media guys attending the show knows where all the good stuff are, and make it a point to cover those first. Rookies to MOC like me would wander thru the ground floor scheme stands, which may take up almost 2 days if one does not manages time well. It’s the final day and I am at the 2nd floor rooms, which is where all the goodies are. So much to see & hear, so little time left.
