Here’s a quick pictorial overview of our trip to Montreal for Salon Son et Image 2012. Â What a great time! Â Thanks to Alan Lofft, JC Benoit, and Andrew Welker for tireless work setting up the show and taking it all back down again, and Andrew’s partner Sue for keeping logistics running smoothly throughout. Â I know I speak for all of them when I say that the pleasure of meeting and talking to so many people and showing off our newest speaker made it all worth while!
Andrew’s brother-in-law Tim Nadeau kindly provided us with photos from the show to share with you. Log in
