    Personally I don't think it failed. What it created was a demand for a bigger and better show in the coming years. It has shown that there is a huge demand for a show and a big one. How that is a failure is beyond me. I have spoken with one of the retailers who attended and they're happy with the end results. They made their money back and more. As well as creating public awareness for their store. They received numerous calls yesterday asking for quotes on tanks. All contacts from being at the expo. Tell me how that is a failure.

    As for the SAPTA thing. Id like to be present to face my accuser at any meeting held to speak about my planted aquarium training course. It is my legal right to face my accuser. And I will send out an email to the board of SAPTA stating this right.

    I like the sound of that, we had very little input from the FW side this year, next year I would like to have a lot more FW and Planted stuff, perhaps a section dedicated to FW/Planted displays where you guys can come in and make up some display tanks or something?

    Might I suggest that the expo set up it's own little forum for all interested parties. Where this delightful thread can be continued, discussed and debated and next years event be planned so it's a better success for all parties, rather than throw dirty laundry about here and bring APSA down to the depths that I have not seen in my time anyway ?

    It is important for things to be discussed and lessons learnt, so it is painful to go through this process, but if something good can come out of this thread, a good show for next year, then so be it..

    The comments one makes tells worlds about ones character, general ethic and for some their business ethics.
    If people are willing do/ act like this over an expo. What are they capable of when doing business deals. Hence... think before you ink ! or like another member said... take the arguments to an offline platform and leave this topic for constructive criticism.

    To be honest I don't know why there is all this flair on this forum when this was clearly a TASA event. APSA has no power over what gets done or decided at the expo. If you have any grievances or even some very good suggestions with the event please take it up with TASA and event organisers. Complaining here and using it as a podium to vent does no one any good. Please keep it clean guys.
