So I'm checking into my hotel for a week long trade show I'm doing and there's all these Athletic looking teams from all over the world wandering around in the casino. Turns out everyone is here for the US Open Champs.
After getting my booth set up across the road at the convention centre, I go back to my hotel and seek out the TKD. $18 later and I'm in, very interesting I must say, very athletic of course. There were some sort of Katas to music also, wich wasn't my cup of tea, but the Kumite was worth watching.
A nice bonus at the end of a long marketing trip.

Is the event still going??

$18 for a booth at the US Open Championship is very reasonable!! Hopefully you ended up with a profit, even if the profit was in increasing your contact network!!

I was always wondering what it would be like to set up a booth and compete as well; very interesting parameters.

He noticed there was a TKD tournament going on at a different hotel, so he went to check it out during some down time during his work. He paid $18 for his ticket to the tournament.

At least thatís my assumption after reading it.
