Main Blog Update: Trade Show Calendar updated with 2020+

We have some rare action on the main blog! Our on-going (since 2014) Trade Show Calendar has been updated for 2020 and beyond. The COVID virus has thrown things in a loop, some shows are postponed/cancelled/TBD, others moved to the Fall of 2020, others moved to 2021 and 2022 (Photokina). Things will definitely change even more as the situation develops. Hopefully things will be under control soon!
