Nine years ago I was working for a print trade magazine so full of ads that when we put the issues we had in our trade show booth reception desk, the weight of them broke it. Those magazines were packed with ads. Today, trade show reception desks are largely safe from this danger. Two questions:
First, what does it take to break the desk today?
Second, considering how much has changed since I took these pictures, what will things be like nine years from now?
PS, I took these pictures of issues of Broadcast Engineering magazine at the 2003 National Association of Broadcasters show.
