Whatas Happening at The Show

The 2010 Nightclub & Bar Convention and Trade Show is nearing its end — but not before the exhibit floor closes at 6 p.m. and the evening parties roll on into the early morning hours. So far, The Show has been a great success, with jam-packed educational sessions, a bustling trade show floor and some high-energy evening events.
