CFN – Another fumble for director of the Cornwall Area Chamber of Commerce as they announced that they will not in fact be rolling out a 2012 Fall Show at the Civic Complex in Cornwall Ontario.
The Chamber has the Spring Show, but declining numbers to both the Spring Show and Fall show have led to the termination of the Fall offering.
It has not been done since 2010 and several vendors were excited and hopeful to see it back including Mr. Mike Bedard of Platinum Pools who had the following to say:
I was disheartened and very disapointed to hear that the fall home show was cancelled again for the second year in a row. The money generating event is useful for those chamber members whose peak season may be better catered to the fall or winter.However, I do believe the current trend of repetitive formats and lack of discussions between the spring show and the fall show may have deterred many participants and sponsors. I have personally mentioned and provided several changes that would improve both the vendors and attendees experience.I personally was a major sponsor in 5 of the past 7 years but did not receive any calls or e-mails to check on my interest in the fall show.
