The Expo Pros Complaint - The Expo Pros - Show/Expos/Convention
The Expo Pros http://www.theexpopros.com/ was totally misleading with their expo. They will tell you a very high estimate of turn out, but I would expect a quarter of what they say. I attended the Baby and Kidz expo, although we had a fairly decent weekend we were told the turn out last year was 15,000-17,000 people and every year it has gone up by 3,000 to 5,000. Speaking with other vendors there we all agreed the MAX turnout even with all the kids was roughly 5,000 people. In addition to the low amount of people showing up the women who sold the booth said they had been looking for a company like mine and wanted to set me up with sponsors and possible T. V. coverage. Anytime I e-mailed her about this she avoided answering and I never heard back about partnerships or T. V. coverage. When I asked who from 9 news would be there several days before hand I received no response. I called the 9 News assignment desk and they had no knowledge of the expo at all.
Bottom Line - My opinion was that they lied about the turn out and will say anything to get you to buy one of their booths. Buyer beware!!
