    This is a shame, as I for one enjoyed going. The number and variety of free talks (albeit with the idea of promoting particualr brands and products) were worth going for.
    The chance to browse and look over products such as presentation albums, and talk to distributors/specialists direct, and see products, was also welcome.

    Given that most exhibitors went year after year showed it was worth it for them, but it does make you wonder how many will consider this a timely exit, without all the assocoated costs of attending such an exhibition.
    As most shopping for gear is done online I can forsee this type of exhibition will eventually not happen.

    I suspect that quite a number of companies, at least in the short term, would still welcome attending something of this sort, so maybe we will see something pop up somewhere but not on the same scale.
    If there is demand it could happen, but it may be that behind the scenec it was getting harder for companies to commit to attending, particulalrly in the current economic cliamte.

    As the press release says, it's time for someone else to take up the baton.

    I nearly missed it this year and now I'm so glad I didn't. There are other trade shows of course but nothing like Focus which has been completely brilliant. I wonder if anyone else will take on the mantle of organising an event like this?
