    Are they really going to have machines on display? I got tired of going to shows with nothing but tables and pushy salesmen.

    The General Manager of Brother International assured me the machine would be there on demo. I think I get to play with it after hours too.

    When southtec was in Charlotte, has, fryer, and a number of others had machines under power and or making parts. The water jet guy was making bottle openers for everyone one year.

    I am planing to attend, but of course we will have to see how the business is doing at the time. They used to alternate SC and NC each year and then quit for several years, glad to see they will try it again. With several machine dealers near both locations it is a shame that the last few shows had such a small turnout. But then last time they had a show in NC it was the same year as IMTS and most companies were saving their money for that show.

    They never quit having it in Charlotte until this year. It was held in Charlotte from at least 2003 (or maybe 2001) till 2011 in odd numbered years. I've been to all of those. This year it should have been in Charlotte, but I guess they felt it would attract more folks in Greenville.

    Cheers,
    --Hawk

    Sorry Hawk, but I have been attending them since 1996 and yes they did "restart" them about the time you started attending. But they did stop them for many years before that...of course you wouldnt know that so no harm no foul...
