I wonder why the N Gauge International Model Railway show, also run by Meridienne at the same venue but in September, is still going ahead.......

Maybe it's okay because it's on a smaller scale?

Maybe because the railway guys are more willing to put their health on the line... :embarrassed:

This might also be why the Midlands Engineering show has gone.

Obviously the problem is to get exhibitors and traders to commit well in advance. But in the current chaotic situation just who is going to be willing to do that, especially if you are of advancing years and still liable to catch the Covid Delta variant even if you have been vaccinated?

A few weeks ago the prospects looked good but now?

Visitors can leave things until much later to decide. Not so with exhibitors and traders.

Yes but if traders exibitors think that there might not be much foot flow they might not want to book.
I am but one person but regrettably I will not be attending any indoor shows this year.

With all this confusion going on and going round in circles we can only hope that 2022 will be the year we can all meet once again. On a personal note I enjoy the commercial shows and the smaller club open days something we have all missed .

Such as shame as we were planning some excellent displays for the show and some excellent pranks for Phil.
Hope to see you soon in 2022 :-))
