I planned to tramp about MICE quietly by myself, take a bunch of photos, and listen to what people were generally discussing. But I found that I couldn’t get from one stand to the next without bumping into someone I knew, exchanging devoted hugs and the general exclamations of ‘How have you been. ’ It took me a while to realize that all these people I knew were an accumulation of the friendships I had forged over the past few years of MICE, relationships I had built, growing stronger and more au courant with each year. Relationships were all around me. The value of MICE isn’t in the fanfare and grandeur.

They’re not doing this under a different brand. By keeping their dub, and reigniting their history, they’re bringing about a different kind of transparency. It’s as if they’re saying ‘we are who we are, we’re proud of ourselves, and we can do this too. Now that we’ve all had a chance to catch up and see what exhibitors are doing, it’s time to get down to business.
