    Just ordered my ticket. I'm looking to buy all new ski gear for the family. And some tech touring gear for myself.

    When you going to spend so much money on ski gear. Pays to go to these things and talk to the experts before dropping the cash.

    Thanks for the heads up. :thumbs:

    What's the point of tickets when it's free entry?

    I am a naive little vegemite, unencumbered by your vast commercial experience, but I would bet London to a brick that disclosure of an email address is part of the process.

    Or it's just too much of a hassle and I don't go (my plan in light of the apparent ticketing requirement).

    I plan on not getting a ticket and seeing what hoops are available at the door.

    There's generally not many gear manufacturers there. Mostly resort marketing. I was there one year and not a great deal of value for manufacturers.
    A couple of retailers sometimes show up.

    I went...lots of booths from various international resorts. Not many from travel organisers...I saw Mogul, skitravel, one other one starting with w.
    Not really any "cheap show deals" going.
    The "presentations" were just short video's.
    A little bit underwhelming, although had a discussion with Mogul ski world about a proposed Canada trip...anyone know of them?

    Contrary to my "not go" plans, I went. A Canberra friend came up and wanted to go, some neighbour friends wanted to go, another friend asked if I was going, and my wife wanted to go. So "go" we did.

    It was actually pretty good - I enjoyed it, which is a first. My daughter said she had a "great day" (obviously not just the ski show).

    Lots of travel booths, lots of resort booths, most ski mags had a booth, a few retailers and a few manufacturers. @DPS Driver one of the retailers had your skis on heavy discount - kidding!! They were displayed as excellent kit.
