Just received a mail that photokina will be cancelled probably for ever.

Yes, just got the same.

It is a shame. I always enjoyed it.

I can understand under the circumstances but why forever?

Trade fairs of all kinds are dying slowly  but surly. The changes in the the photographic sector have brought things forward faster.

I used to attend a huge building industry fair in Bologna every year. It once took a whole day just to see the sectors that interested me. last time I went I did the stuff that interested me in three hours. The fair was a quarter of its pervious size.

How we get information about new products has changed or is changing.

Here's a post in the News & Rumors Talk forum with a link to the press release.

"In view of the further massive decline in markets for imaging products, Koelnmesse has decided to discontinue organising photokina at its Cologne location for the time being..."
