The MAIN Event to go bi-annual?



Speculation is growing that the MAIN Event is to become bi-annual.


A source from the event organisation team told OPI that the dealer groups are keen to maintain their individuality, so they look increasingly likely to exhibit individually next year and return to the MAIN Event in 2007.


Rick Needle, CEO of Integra, said that recent events at United and Advantia and the event’s lengthy organisational process, would make it difficult to organise the MAIN Event in time for Spring 2006.


A final decision was expected just after OPI went to press.
