    I imagine they'll think a bit more deeply about their policies, this time around.

    It's a whole different show and it's going to be run by the NRA, not Reed Exhibitions. I'm guessing that this move will be the final nail in the ESOS coffin. Good riddance to Reed.

    While I never venture that far north I may be convinced to make a road trip since the NRA will sponsor the show.

    The loss of the ESOS will have limited impact on Reed Exhibits, they organize/schedule /manage hundreds of very large events each year world wide. The loss of the show will have little impact their bottom line..

    I am quite sure that the NRA sponsored show will draw a larger number of vendors, speakers and guests. Without a doubt it will be a very rewarding experience for all who are able to attend.....

    If it is anything like their annual membership meeting it will be well done. As others have mentioned they need to get proactive and promote rather than going on the defense all the time.
