Anyone going to ISA this year?  It crept up so fast...well this whole last year has gone by so fast.  I think this was the earliest we ever booked our room and flight, which was last October, lol

Gary, What meeting are you referring to? I don't see anything that fits that description.

I think he's jokingly referring to the National Sign Co meet and greet :P

 

If only ISA checked out the credit history of those National Sign & Service companies that they have attend their function, and of course stop handing out long time achievement awards to them, especially since they continue to poorly pay their subcontractors on various projects around the country.

 

If only...

Sorry, that is what I was referring to!  It's always fun to put a face, or faces, alongside the infamous deadbeats!  Course it's also fun to see their face when you ask them why they don't pay their bills!  Oops, my personality is showing.  Sorry.  For those that go, have fun!

Subbing.....not my line of work but, maybe for shits and giggles I'll go and take selfies with all the non payers all while having a ear to ear smile & shit eating grin on my face with them and post at a later time. 

 

I remember for that one year I volunteered at the USSC show and they had their version of a National Sign Co Meet & Greet and when I walked through to say "hi"..... I was muttering to myself knowing our review list "...they pay, they don't, they don't, they don't....THEY especially don't....he has people looking for him"

Selfies would be great, and then post alongside the deadbeat company name!  Quite funny and apropo.

I haven't been in to the ISA show in a handful of years.

Think it might be cool to go and see whats new...if anything.

Does anyone know if all the days are the same (as far as the expo goes), or is there a day that is best to shoot for?

Quick reminder that the days of the ISA Sign Expo have shifted for 2019.  This year, the exhibit hall is open from Wednesday, April 24-Friday, April 26 (with education sessions starting on Tuesday, April 23). In recent years, the exhibit hall was open Thursday-Saturday (with education sessions starting on Wednesday).

Kenny, how come no Saturday this time? Just the scheduling unavailability or just busier during the week?

Basically, we wanted to try something new. Which is a regular part of our Expo planning each and every year. But changes to registration management company or our event programming or education scheduling/pricing tend to be less noticeable to attendees than switching the days of the week.

 

Traditionally, I think that we believed that some people couldn't attend during the workweek and so Saturday show hours would draw additional attendees. But I am told that the numbers may not have borne that out as much as expected--and some attendees/exhibitors likely prefer to have their weekends free. So we will see if Wednesday-Friday works well for this year.  (BTW, I should note that I don't know if this is just a one-year experiment. Not my department. 🙂

    • Happy birthday Erik. I hope I keep my baby face like you have managed to
    • I was always under the impression that the mass produced neon signs where pushed through a die and made. I had no idea they where actually hand made. thanks for sharing.
    • I split these posts off to create it's own topic because it's far too interesting to get lost in the shuffle in a LED discussion.   Those are some awesome pics Frank, thanks for sharing those....oh and by all means I don't think anyone here can get tired from hearing about Neon!
    • Sure, I'm on the wrong computer but I have some of Fallon Shanghai...   This is an order for 3500 Miller Lite (Old Logo), we are waiting (too long) for Ventex transformers coming in from the states so all these are minus them - this was a typical month's production - we could do more but it was waiting for materials which always screwed with the schedule.   All the masterpack boxes behind are with the power supplies.  We only did pattern bending, no jigs or fixtures, with 25 benders.  Each table had a QC girl who checked every bit of glass made by the benders by slotting them into a jig.    We used all EGL glass and electrodes and when we ran out of clear I did source Chinese clear that was made for lamp manufacture (I kept this a secret that we're using Chinese glass lol).  On a side line I wanted to do our own coating, its not rocket science once you have the right phosphor / binder and kiln. I've coated before in Australia ( tes I was there too! ol).  Where people sourcing glass come undone - the glass formula needed to be for lamp manufacture and the tubes are acid washed and dried before packing.  If you just buy any clear glass its ok for small units ~4 feet. Anything more than 5 feet you're pushing it and 7~8 feet fuhgeddaboudit! Yes it will pump and age ok, neon looks good bright red but then after about a day or two the electrodes cannot keep up with the outgassing and the tube fails.    This is the pump I designed- 12 ports three bombarders (custom made with the secondary center tapped like a neon transformer for safety) at the far end was another pump. Each port could be isolated if there was a problem with a unit. We had three of these running continuously with two pumpers at each one.  One was the operator while the other one tipped off units on one end and connected six more on the other end.  So when one side was doing the final pumping down the other side was ready to go when the GTO was switched over.  My original plans had a bombarder GTO switch so it was just a flick of a switch to do the other side.  Our standard was the electrodes would be heated to a bright orange and we did a helium flush   The neon aged for 4 hours with the Hg in the trap, any unit not dull was rejected.  The ones that passed the first aging were aged for 7 more hours when the Hg was admitted. We had a lot of aging tables with three layers.  We could switch between 30 and 60mA, usually it was 60mA for 8mm we would use 30mA.  Aging neon with 30mA is too slow.     Cheers...   PS Don't get me talking about neon...I'll bend your ear off!
