Reed Exhibitions, organizer of the show, has decided “not to include certain products that in the current climate may attract negative attention that would distract from the strong focus on hunting and fishing,” according to a post on the show’s website at 6 p.m. Tuesday.
Ed Several, general manager of the show, said the decision will impact five exhibitors out of the more than 1200 registered for the 2013 show, and speculated that
Reed Exhibitions is the problem. I forget what year the PA Farm Show entity “sold off” the management of organizing the show but I’m quite sure it was when the cost to attend and cost to park started escalating. I quit attending when I found out the profits from the show went out of state.
Reed Exhibitions has no passion for the topics this show is about, or probably most of any of the other exhibitions they manage, but merely collects for putting the show on.
Screw them, I’ll support the local shows that the Lion’s Club, Tall Cedars, fire companies, etc. host.
