AXPONA 2019 Show Coverage brought to you by Core Power Technologies

Let’s face it.  You need to read all the Best of Show articles to get a real sense of AXPONA.  The reason is that AXPONA has become a HUGE show.  Mere mortals cannot cover the whole show.  It’s just too big.  We can write about the best rooms but there is some chance we will miss a really good one.
