Beginning next year, the Motivation Show will host only a two-day trade show, saving the third day just for education. The conference sessions will be held Oct. 12 and the trade show will run Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 13 and 14, extending the schedule an hour each day, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. This will save setup costs for exhibitors, as they no longer will have to prepare over the weekend. Also, the show now will be held in Chicago's McCormick Place West instead of South, to take advantage of its Wi-Fi capabilities, among other reasons.
