Richard, my comment was in no way meant to be negative - just a personal observation from not knowing what to expect and not having been to previous shows.
Ribex 2004 was 100% better than other shows I have been to, both marine and others, where some of the exibitors seem to be more interested in having a good thrash at the company's expense and meeting up with their industry mates than discussing their products with potential customers
