We all know that face-to-face meetings bring people together, but recently, we received a powerful reminder of the unexpected ways in which they can. Richard Ross and Alex Michaels were good friends in high school. But after graduating, they lost touch and didn’t see or speak with each other again until … PYM Houston! Ross, exhibiting for the Hilton Fort Worth, and Michaels, exhibiting for Visit Jacksonville, saw each other on the trade show floor and were reunited after 25 years apart. Cheers, guys!
