Mixed feelings about coming to Taiwan for the show. The proximity to the continuing unfolding disaster in Japan has put off a lot of people. Certain customers of mine wont be here (which means I will have to go and see them instead) as they have cancelled at the last minute. I personally don’t think that is a necessary to avoid Asia because of problems in one part of it, but the fact is that it is a personal decision.
The Taipei show opens this morning. However a welcome party held by Velo and Wellgo for their customers was held last night. I was invited to speak on stage.
It was a small affair, with just 450 people and a 10 course meal. There were bands and dancers and lots of free wine!
No sharks were hurt in the making of this meal. – it wasn’t real shark fin used in the soup.
