I have never noticed a discount on parts there compared to direct through their website - but you may be able to chat to them and come to a 'deal' so to speak.

I like that you can you talk to them face to face, it seems to be getting harder to get some of these guys to talk even on the phone these days. You can also see some of the parts before you buy them, which is nice for things like the shiny Optimil or Raptor goods. Its also convenient not having to wait in for a delivery at home if that is an issue for you. 2005 Td5 90 XS

Yeah, I know what you mean. Half of the vendors don't really reply anymore for some reason.

Anyway thanks, I will have a think as there is probably a serious risk of adding more items to the already long shopping list Very Happy ..

Looking at the map and list of exhibitors, I think they have done quite well, given the current economic upheaval, to get as many exhibitors as they have.
There are some notable absences and as has been said, some exhibitors presences maybe on a smaller scale than other years?

Not sure if I will be going. I've never been too bothered by the offerings in either the Arena or interviews in workshop area. I just like mooching round the stands Thumbs Up

The thing that needs to be understand about suppliers (and this is a general rule, there will be exceptions to it) to keep prices down, the only real way of cutting costs is to either buy cheaper products (this will only go so far with world wide raw material prices going through the roof, or the product becoming cr@p) and / or to cut your staff to the absolute minimum. The less staff a supplier employs, the smaller their overheads, the better value their products, but the knock on effect is less people to interact with customers. You takes your choice!

If you are looking for something in particular, and the supplier is in attendance, the show might at least let you see the product before you purchase.
