Fresh Talk poll - recession impact on travel

The just concluded Fresh Talk poll showed decidedly mixed opinions about the recession's impact on industry travel. I think the industry will travel far better to the trade shows than, say, the recent National Association of Home Builders show in Las Vegas. Show attendance for that hard hit industry was down sharply from year ago levels. For the relatively even-keeled fresh produce trade, convention travel allows for attractive economies in terms of meeting with many customers at one location. Find the Fresh Talk poll archive here.
