POE looks amazing this year. Marni's display is particularly awesome. I hope everyone who can make it comes down.
I can't wait! Been looking forward to it for months.
O.k. Karen and Candace, what did you find to buy? Karen, I rarely
do the BIG shows twice. I find I'm too damn lazy to do the flying
thing and trying to get my purchases back safely. I hope the two
of you had a Big Time!
My imports are soaking at the moment, so I can't get names. Let's just say I restrained myself this year. I think I only bought 6 or 7 plants. Mostly species with one or two hybrids thrown in. There seemed to be a lot more people there on Fri. this year. Fewer vendors, but I can understand that with the ecomony woes. All in all another great show. Marni's display was wonderful!
Pictures and list, please! I bet you're more motivated to get that greenhouse rolling again. ;-)
Candace grabbed my butt! I love meeting women that way.
...and a good time was had by all.
Can't wait to see all of the photos and lists.
It certainly is. Very inspirational for us angraecoid folks. Here's a few of the things I picked up Thursday and Friday (a couple of them were pre-orders).
Aerangis luteoalba v. rhodosticta
Vanda Sansai Blue
Got to meet the Botanica folks. Very nice family and a fantastic addition to the show this year. I hope they become regulars.
Very nice haul, T. Fess up Karen and Candace.
Jon, I'm jealous.
I had hoped to go this year but didn't. Bummer. I just came back from a short vacation and didn't want to drive that far. I'm putting next year's show on my calendar so I can plan way in advance for it.
Any reports? Pictures? Looks like there weren't many vendors this year from what I've seen in EricInSF Flickr's. So sad!!!
I don't bring my camera to the show. I have to admit getting rather irritated by all the folks staking claim to prime spots in front of exhibits and stopping the flow of people. I think POE should be like many other big shows and have a "camera" time for photographers so people aren't tripping on them constantly. Grrrr.
There were lots of vendors there that were local, national and international. One of the vendors had a problem with his paperwork and wasn't able to clear in time for the show. There were one or two more booths with "sponsors", which I suppose is a necessary evil in this economy, and there is still a waiting list for vendors.
There will probably be a photographer's morning next year, at least it is being discussed. But that probably won't stop people from doing it during the show.

Sorry this is so late, but we went to POE, then off on vacation.
Marni's display was spectacular, other excellent displays included Four Friends (Steve Beckendorf, et al), Andy's, and Living Green.
Here are links to photos of the show:
