        You guys suffering attendances too. ??????????

        Most of our shows are total crap now, cost manufacturers too much and not enough demand for products

          half the boots are water cleanup companies giving out goodie bags and end of show door prizes to try and get your business.

          you're right, the boots cost way too much money and the return on investment doesn't pay off for lots of the companies. especially by the time they set up their booth and man it.

          last year i walked out with $40.00 of purchases. didn't even spend the night in long beach.

              How is Gorlitz not going to be there? That's their backyard.

                It really isn't surprising to me that attendance is down at these shows. How important are trade shows today when you stop to think about it? They are ok for networking but it is so much cheaper to show off your product online and hit a much larger audience.

                  Just a thought. Newspaper subscriptions are in the Toilet, because of the internet. Toilets are there too !

                    I don't think I've ever seen Gorlitz there. I did see Spartan in Anaheim.

                    I don't see the point unless you're planning a major purchase.

                          Update. Hotel already booked for saturday night. Much more reasonable 1 block away at the marriott renaissance. 114. With aaa.

                          When I gave my email to the reservation girl In texas, she realized I was a plumber. Turned into a 5 minute diy water heater flushing to try and eliminate knocking in her 3 year old gas heater.

                          Hopefully I solved her heater issue and she comps me breakfast.

                          Any other overnighters coming for saturday night?

                          Joey and phoebe will probably go to the aquarium of the pacific on saturday.

                            I just booked my room at the Marriott for the show. I'm glad I waited to book my room. Last night it was $125 a night and this morning it was $74 a night.
