Blade Show Attendance

May 21, 1999

I had a table at the last Blade Show and it was my observance that the atendance was not there, as in previous years. I have been going to this show ever since it was in Nashville, and this year it seems like there was not nearly as many people there as before. I have checked with a few of my friends and customers and they said they didnt even know the show was being held. Apparently ot everonereads Blade Magazine. I feel that if I have to pay $325.00 for a table, the least the promoters (Krause) could do is spend some of that money on TV Advertising. I figured out that they made about $225,000 just on the booths and tables, not counting the paying attendees. Does anyone else have an opinion on this or am I just being picky?
