Last month, the participants in the ABB Low-Voltage Products Roadshow in King of Prussia, Pa., went on with the show in the best theatrical tradition. Even though a car accident knocked out a local transformer and power at the Valley Forge Convention Center, participants didnt miss a beat.
The workshop/session leaders were troopers as the power went out and all the rooms went to low levels of emergency lighting, said Steven Jones, the show coordinator. They never broke stride, simply describing the slides they were seeing via battery power on their laptops and kept right on presenting in real time. The attendees never left the rooms, and they kept right on asking questions!
