Meeting someone in an exhibition at Earl's Court today, it struck me how old fashioned the idea of a trade show is. Loads of people milling around with more salesmen than buyers.
In technology I suspect that more money is spent on them that is made at them, but their impact is difficult to measure.
It amazes me that no one has yet managed to hold virtual exhibitions (or have missed something ?).
Now that's an angle on internet video that's yet to be fulfilled - and provides a good argument for cost savings in these difficult days.
