This week's survey

(These survey questions are sent in by our readers. Please spend a minute to give your answer to this week's survey as one or possibly more of your industry peers thinks this question is important and wishes to see your point of view as well as others in the industry.)

Last week's survey
Would you prefer our trade shows to include a weekend?

The organisers have said many times that they have tried to get a weekend but to date, have not been able to.
Peter Harper, GM of VISA has advised that next year's Sydney show will run from Thursday to Saturday, September 12-14th.


  • Yes
  • Yes, After attending this show customers and other exhibtors said the same thing go back to Thursday, Friday, Saturday this allows for Interstate customers to travel on thursday night or friday and this is an easy Option it allows time for the show and time in the locallity of the event to get a break.Also as an Exhibitor the costs involved whith weekend setups and charges by freight companies and overtime bills adds to the already very high costs of the stands.
  • Thurs, Fri, Sat seems to be the best formula
  • Most definitely! It's too difficult to get away from the business including travel to & from the show
  • YES!!!! At least a Saturday. And outside school holidays too.
  • yes - weekeends are good. some of us have difficulty in getting away from the shop on a weekeday.
  • For sure would be less stress for a lot of self emplayed people and also could combine with a weekend away. ALSO the Sydney show was right on the first day of school holidays, You could tell! lots of people had no choice but to bring kids along.
  • Yes I would like weekends (as they used to be). For Local and Interstate shows, one advantage is that partness can attend as we are sometimes talking big investments. It also takes the pressure off having to answer work calls while talking to sales people. It also allows those time poor to still see it on a weekend. It can be more relaxing to make a decision on a weekend.
  • Yes.It takes me away from the business for 2 days when they are held on weekdays only.
  • Yes, at least Saturday....I do not think Sunday should be included, Thursday, Friday, Saturday would seem to be the better choice.
  • Yes, it would give country folk a chance to view new technology without stressing business
  • Yes, Thursdsy to Saturday would be the preferred days to attend and to bring staff. 
  • YES!!!
  • We would have liked to go to the Sydney show because there are so many more exhibitors than at the Qld show but can't afford the down time to travel to Sydney in the middle of the week.
  • Not a weekend but as they used to be where they were open late at least one of the days. Everyone is busy and in this economic client need to keep the work going when its there so for a small business its hard to get there during normal business hours.
  • Yes or at least run into the evening. The current exhibition hours are gentlemans hours and bear little realtionship to the time demands of the average sign company. If I was a supplier I would be pretty pissed off with the limited opening hours that my potential customers could come to the show and surprised that as a group they didn't demand longer hours.
  • YES as we are only 2 person team i cannot attend this years show as it falls in our busy time of the year. Go back to when it was on Thursday, Friday & Saturday so the little operators can attend and talk to our suppliers and see new equipment.
  • Definitely
  • no
  • Is it way to hard to figure out that small businesses with 1-3 people can't take a full day off to visit these shows, or is just set up for the big companies to go to, if there were at least 1 or 2 days on a weekend, we would not hesitate to go, local or interstate. What I figure out is it cost the show organisers much more money to stage the event over a week-end, and I would still go even if there was an entry fee to get in. So wake up organisers please!!!!
  • obviously! when you have your own business and work for yourself - if you don't work you don't get paid. You can't always afford to take a day from your business to travel interstate to a trade show.
  • Yes,Yes,Yes small operators cannot afford to close up shop for a couple of days.
  • Yes as we all working during the week days and weekend is the better option for us to visit the trade shows
  • Yes!!
  • Yes
  • Yes possibly Thur, Fri and Sat. This minimises the impact on the working week and allows Sunday for travel for those from out of Town. Also if visiting Sydney for example it allows you to experience more of what is on offer as not much happening on weekdays.
  • yes, and definitely NOT in school holidays (that's probably more important to us)
  • DEFINITELY. As a family owned and run business it is impossible to close during the week to attend these shows and they are the best opportunity to see new machines and innovations. It is also a great opportunity to learn of new or pending trends. Exhibitors need to be aware that this is the only opportunity many of us get to attend these shows and not to be half packed up ready for closing on the weekend day if it is the last day.
  • YES! Just like they used to be. We have provided feedback to the show organisers each year stating why we would not be attending. We could include a weekend on the Mon, Tues, Wed shows, but the Thurs, Friday, Sat shows were definitely a lot better. We travel from regional South Australia, so it does add extra days travel. With the weekend shows,(Sydney) we used to arrive on Friday morning, spend the whole day at the show to check out as much as we could, and then go back on the Saturday morning to meet/liaise with specific suppliers. We could make a weekend of it and be back at work for Monday morning effectively only having one day away from work. Bring 'em back!
  • I think it should at least include a Saturday, so small operators can get there. Also it should be out of School Holidays so we country folk can get better air fares to attend.
  • Yes at least a Saturday.
  • No
  • I think it would make it easier on the smaller companies to attend as sometimes urgent jobs come up on a weekday that need to be taken care of urgently. It also allows for the staff to go if they would like to.
  • yes
  • definitely.. Most sign companies in Aussie are small owner operated and not being open during the week isnt a good thing for our businesses. Lets face it, they are trade shows to show and sell to us, so isnt the customer king?
  • Yes I would when you are busy you just can't make it during the week.
