It's that time of year again -- when we all start planning our yearly trip to ASA's Staffing World. This year the event will be held in Las Vegas.

We love to take this opportunity to meet up with our readers and contributors in person to discuss what's going on in their neck of the woods. The staffing industry is different in every city and I love finding out which cities are booming and which ones are struggling.

Honestly, my favorite part is listening to the amazing battle stories staffing agency owners and executives have to tell.

In addition to wandering around talking to people, taking pictures, listening to keynotes and attending breakout sessions, I will also be hanging out at the TempWorks Software booth (#301). Some of the other people I will be traveling with are: David Dourgarian, Paul Czywczynski, Mari Kautzman, Melanie Kramer, Dalyce Brell, Susan Wurst and more. Whether you want a demo of the latest staffing technology, or if you want to see your story on Staffing Talk, visit us at Booth #301.

If you're in the mood for some free adult beverages at the nicest bar in the Venetian, then come and hang out with us at Aquaknox on Wednesday, October 10th. We will be there from 6-9pm. We're not inviting you to sell you anything, we just love being in the company of industry leaders and want to hear your thoughts on the state of the staffing business. Co-sponsors Call-Em-All and Essential StaffCARE will also be there!

Are you making the trip to Staffing World this year? We'd love to see you. If you are a vendor, please leave your Booth # in the comments below and someone from Staffing Talk will stop by!
