I just spoke with Lisa Behnke, Marketing Manager for World Dairy Expo and the activity level in Madison is cranking. Just imagine 2,000 people checking into a hotel in about 3 days. Then imagine if those were cattle! That’s about how many animals are being brought to Expo this year and they’re driving in as we speak. They’ve all got to be checked in and put in their places. And of course, there is all the people who are bringing them in.
Besides that you’ve got about 1,500 exhibitors all moving in their booths and equipment at the same time. And of course the whole Expo staff has to move into the facilities from their regular office building.
I’m glad I’m traveling there on Sunday!
