Word on the "street", they don't want to go to Orlando anymore. From what I have heard it has something to do with the convention center there and labor relations as well as they feel that the turn out at Orlando is much smaller then it is at vegas. Instead of spending the cash I guess they feel they should just not go. Suprising though because its the first chance for a wide audience to play with the showgun. I have a feeling someone will have one there though.
Martin had a very public announcement about it saying they were changing their marketing strategy and want to spend more money on taking things out too the people and less on the mega trade shows. It officially sounded like it had nothing to do with LDI as an organization or Orlando as a location. It also sounded like they wanted to put their money into more smaller shows and maybe put together some sort of road tour doing their own little regional stuff. This could also just be them blowing smoke. I don't remember which magazine it was all written up in... maybe PLSN... it's been 6 months or so since this was announced.
And Charc... it's not really a booth... it's known as the TMB lounge for a reason.
