Barter Industry Members Astutely Leverage Annual International
Three decades have passed since the commercial barter industry�s
first convention. So it�s good to see the evidence that some within
the industry are looking to take advantage of the considerable
efforts employed by IRTA (International Reciprocal Trade
Association), getting industry executives from around the globe
together in one location at their yearly Barter Congress.
In Pittsburgh this fall, IRTA�s annual convention will be held
October 28-30. The day prior, Green Apple Barter will stage its
Annual Trade Show, enabling all of the IRTA attendees to attend,
buy, and sell using the industry�s Universal Currency. This is an
industry first and predictably it won�t be the last, as it promises
to add further value to the convention.
An industry software vendor is astutely piggy-backing the IRTA
Congress too! Barter 21�s management realizes the considerable
benefit of utilizing the annual convention for holding both a needed
training session and a peer-interaction time for all exchange
owners. Working with IRTA, they�ve obtained meeting space for their
specific sessions. Thus not only averting the need to schedule the
sessions at another time, but also saving considerable traveling
time and money in the process.
