  1. About time on of the big players went back to the January show. I stopped going to both shows after attending the December show in its first two years. While perhaps not the “classy” venue that the MMIC would like, I think we all have a greater affinity for the January show.

    • pay attention young man
      they are going to the downtown toronto show not Barr’s piece of work
      I do not miind reading Corporate babble but poease CMG do not pretend it is writtten  by your staff
      expose it for what it is A press release
      I truly dowbt  that they draw more people than the Super show and that junk about that junk about “always played a significant role” the thing was domant for decades It only restaerted ’cause the Mfrs got pissed at Barr
      Even then they could not come through with most of their promises of quality tech people  and no vendors of junk
