First of all, welcome to Atlanta for all of you who are here for MRO Americas! There was lots of activities--from association meetings to exhibit hall set up going on today. It was great to see many people out and about tonight.
We're expecting record attendance--so come learn, network, see lots of new products and services, and transact business. The exhibit hall, registration and conference rooms are all on the same floor in building B of the conference center, so it's easy to get around.
As for what the hot topics will be in the next few days--I predict there will be many more than I can cover in this space, but sequestration's affects on slowing engineering approvals will certainly be one.
Please follow our live coverage from the conference the next three days at http://ow.ly/jZG0r.
