ETO show cancelled

Yes it's true
So the news is out, the ETO show has been cancelled for 2017. They say it will be back next year, but since both price and Brexit and being blamed for its demise unless the big venues drop the prices, and Brexit fixes itself overnight, I feel it may be hard work to bring it back in a similar style for 2018.

Not surprised
We sort of knew it was on the cards, when the organiser starts dropping hints about venue changes, then promises that details will be released at the end of the week, and then that week passes, then the next, and then emails are not replied to, you start to get the hint.

Possibly not the best way
Although we all use social media, It would have been nice to hear directly, not via Facebook, and it would have been even nicer not to have lost money in advance hotel bookings, but that is life, and a risk you take in business. (But if you ever plan to book the Crown at the NEC, then be well aware of their complete disinterest in terms of customer service).
