They actually moved it to LA last year due to feedback and it was the worst attending I-Hobby show in history. Chicago is centrally located for the most part and is much easier/cheaper to attend.

There are many reasons why it has slowed, but nobody knows all of them. I think Shane hit on some great points and the key one is the internet.

To hang a velco sign on your booth, the decorators union has to do that. ChaChing. You need an extension cord (they have like 6 prongs, you can't bring your own) ? That will be 60 bucks minimum. Even if you can wheel in your booth they won't allow that, the union has to do it. ChaChing. The food is expensive too. We had a 10x10 booth and spent a small fortune.

The hotel rooms in the area can be $300 a night too.

So what you are saying is that you didn't make a return on your investment?

Spending time and energy using other means of marketing is better?

I'll be in the Proline/Protoform display. If you're attending, stop over and say hello. Let us know your opinion on the things we're doing. We'd love to hear your perspective on things in the rc hobby/race world.

Many years ago when the show was really huge I stopped and talked with Dale and suggested that he make a body of the then NEW Mazda 6. Then like 6 months latter there was an ad for the body....I donít think that my conversation made him make the body but in my own head I will think so.... So yes he does listen to the little people and has put out some great products and if anyone is going to be at the show stop by and talk to him.


So whos going to make it out to the show this weekend????
