The way I read the brochure is that the trade show is on all 4 days but it might be best to check.
I'm hoping to go on the Friday arvo ... do you have to book online or can you just rock up on the day?

Just got home from Expo. I thought the ones years ago at Caulfield had so much more. Well presented at Jeff's Shed but traffic getting in and ridiculously expensive parking was a damper.  Nothing new really.....Sad

I went yesterday (Friday) arvo with another groomer and we were both really looking forward to the trade show and were both a little disappointed.
It cost $30 to get in (not PIAA members) and we had walked around in about 30min. We felt like we were being accosted at some stalls and couldn't just browse without being pounced on (bit like Bali Smile ).
We wanted to watch the creative grooming but there were only 4 dogs entered (3 years ago there were at about a dozen) but we did watch that for a while.
Got a bite to eat, tiny chips and a drink $10.
Then we wondered around again and didn't get harassed as much so we were able to browse a bit more.
We were there a little over 3 hours and headed off only to find parking was $40 Shocked ) and it took us 1&1/2 hours to drive back to Pakenham.
Cost $80 + toll + fuel ...... not worth the effort Crying or Very sad

It seems to me, that from the Trade show perspective( for any PIAA event) there are never many exhibitors when the expo's are held in Melbourne.  Sydney certainley attracts many more exhibitors.  Can't speak for Brisbane as I have not attended a Brisbane expo.
