I personally believe that the shows are necessary. If you buy a $250,000 machine you want to be there in person and see it run. Your not going to order it over the internet. However, I also believe that the machinery companies were being squeezed a little too hard and it was during a recession and it was not a very smart move. If I were the machinery companies who left I would have just gotten together with each other rented a building temporarily and brought in the equipment and set it up and have their show across town and set up buses to bus people back and forth to the world congress center. These people probably rented a third of the space and were probably responsible for drawing at least a third of the people. Anyways, no telling what will happen. I sort of have a feeling that they will set up a large regional show in North Carolina where many of their main offices are.
