So that's the LAME excuse for not opening the interbike west show for a couple of days to the general public ?
The end objective is to sell bikes and components to the general public.
If the general public isn't buying your bikes and components then your trade show is pretty worthless !
You would generate more buzz and buying support by opening the show to the general
public instead of keeping it in it's current form as an "insider only" trade show.
If demo east can open the show for two days to the general public then why can't interbike west do the same ???
