HIGH COST OF ANA EXHIBITING  

   President Michael J. Sullivan writes:  "In response to the 
   comments about displays for ANA -  The real issue is the 
   ANA is too restrictive relative to display placement.  Last 
   year's ANA in Portland required me to leave for the 
   convention about 2 days earlier than required to place my 
   display at a personal cost of about $300.  This is a lot of 
   "cost" to incur for the restrictions.  If the ANA becomes 
   more progressive and expands the time slot options, more 
   displays will be placed.  

   I have plenty of display oriented material in my library and 
   am prepared to do this.  I opted out of displaying in Chicago 
   related only to options of  placement/removal, and cost."  

   As a past exhibitor myself, I have to agree with Michael's 
   point.  Although the main reason for my not displaying this 
   year was my plan to bring my family along, I run into the 
   same problem each year - it's an expensive proposition to 
   attend an extra day or two, especially when the use of 
   precious vacation days is taken into account.  My hat is off 
   to the dedicated souls who devote the bulk of the week to 
   attending the convention.
