I'm referring to "trade only" shows - e.g., where
manufacturers are exhibiting and retailers are attending - ie., no public.
Having attended that type of show as a
retailer, those shows are lame because it’s a room full of vendors trying
to get you to sell their product. The only story is how many units did company
X get orders for. Of course, everything depends on your focus. If you are
covering a particular industry for trade press, those types of shows might be
very interesting to your viewers.
