rare birds


Poznan is a simple smallish show. It is not well attended by customers (end users) but full up with exhbitors.

If asked 'how is the show' the standard reply would be 'shite, but we must be here and we had a good Presence this year don't you agree?' or 'it's good, good, the show is very good don't you agree?.'

In my opinion the show is neither. There are certainly some people buying things but it is an exhibitors show. Lot's of peacocks preening. And not enough oggling.

Was it worth the trip? Sure.

Despite this, the Poznan show may go the way of the dodo. I'm not sure how long a show like this can be justified for just the peacocks.
