A Walk Around RMAF

Issue 18

I’ve already written plenty about this year’s RMAF, and the challenges the show faced and overcame. Time now to just leave you with a few images from the show, and to note that it was a helluva good time.


Why wasn’t the Atrium end of the Marriott ready? Well—here’s what the old restaurant and bar area looked like in August.
