No stand planned this year or special prizes, but some of us will be down throughout the show.

Pete, does this mean you'll be taking a day off to visit FOCUS 2013? Wink
It looks like quite a few people are skipping focus this year. olympus, Sony etc.
I understand that in the current economic climate everyone is making cut backs. but im surprised that some of the big names not attending.
Im assuming that the organisers have not reduced the exhibition rates. There is a similar problem on the high street. Councils and landlords have not realised that business's can not survive while paying such high rent and rates.
Our local town council has just increased parking charges. what made things worse is parking in town on a Sunday was free. This gave the town high street a chance to compete against the outer town retail parks just for one day. Now the council have decided to charge on Sundays and put the fee up. The shopping centre now has 30% of their shops empty. Wouldnt it be much better to charge everyone less and have all the shops occupied.
The same could be said of Focus. they could have reduced the rates, so more business's would exhibi

The OAP Special is a talk with the nurse, dietary advice and then a free box of laxatives. . It's called the Chat, low fat and Shat. I don't bother with it.

Were not bothering this year either, it's a good show and they have some great seminars there, but if you're looking for a bargain on any item forget it! You're much better off just going up and researching the products you're after, them coming home and finding the best price available on the Internet......Long gone are the days when you could bag yourself a bargain there with a special show price, unless it was secondhand and even then the retailers there seemed to want top dollar. We went up last year with a view to buying several expensive bits of kit, but came away with nothing because we'd done our homework first and knew the price we wanted, nobody at the show were prepared to match the price, so we came home empty handed. Still made for a good day out though, despite the crowds.
