Sure, you’ve got your smartphone and your tablet. You can order just about anything you want from nearly anyone or anywhere in the world. You can Facetime and Skype and Instagram and whatever else is the hottest way to connect these days. But — and we know we’ve said this before, but we’ll say it again — nothing beats a handshake. Nothing beats sitting down with colleagues and customers, suppliers and speakers.

So you’ve got to get out there. And even though you can’t be everywhere at once, you can make the most of your time and your air miles if you plan now. Let us help.
