HPBExpo 2018 Nashville Recap

Rasmussen exhibited for the 39th time at the HPBExpo – that’s every year since it started, for those keeping score. Nashville is a fun town, the Music City Center a great venue, and the attendees were upbeat, interested and plentiful. Here is a recap of our booth from the show:

We featured a new “brick and mortar” booth design. Visitors were greeted and assisted by (left to right) Rett Rasmussen, Ray Vavla, Rich Robles and Felix Ortiz.
