It's time for a change
Numbers are definitely down and there are far fewer tyre-kickers which is good. If it's any consolation, the lack of titillation provided by the purveyors of images with excessive skin tones is easily made up for by the aggressive prostitutes outside of the show that make you feel like you have to choose between a dose and death. As usual, lots of people have lost laptops and had their pockets picked. This form of theft has also been supported by another form of theft called Hotel tariffs.
I’ve been attending this show for 10 years and I have to say it’s brilliant for business, networking and learning about what’s new. Perhaps, and given the reduced attendance, it could be moved to somewhere other than Barcelona next year. I appreciate the benefit hosting it in a warm’ish climate so maybe it could stay in Southern Europe, perhaps by the Sea, somewhere like ... errrmmm .. .Cannes!
