Expo was held in Brooklyn Park, a northern suburb of Minneapolis, in November. I was extremely disappointed in this Expo. I have gone to every Expo for the last 10-15 years and this is the first time I was disappointed.

The venue is much smaller than the others. There was only one room for the free demos, and it was very nice, roomy, theater seating. Nice. However, this was the only one. Many vendors I am used to seeing were not there, for instance, Vogue Fabrics. This Expo overall was much smaller than I had in mind.

In the past I have spent my entire day at the Expo. This time I was out of there in two hours. Add to the fact that this is a good 40 minute drive from my home, disgusting. I intend to skip it next year.

If its just that it's small-then that's the economy. If we all quit going then there won't be an expo. Did you take any classes? I guess I just would like to know if there's any other reason that you found it "disgusting.?"

Yes, I agree. The Expo seems to be going downhill. It's so sad. I keep going though--can't seem to stay away

So sorry to hear of the much smaller expo. I am sure it is the economy. Probably true of many of the shows. Well, we can hope for the best next year!

How disappointing. My husband scheduled a trip for himself that weekend, so I didn't get to go to Expo. It's usually my one getaway weekend for myself every year. Now I don't feel bad about missing it. I hope you left some feedback for them so they can try and improve it for next year.
