I know! I was there also! I was impressed with the show. I had been to Automechanika Dubai and then did some business in South Africa. On my way home, I met my bride in London for a holiday. Our final day, we went to the Automechanika Birmingham. I met the Gendan team there and spent a few minutes learning about their plans. We played their game and of course, my bride beat me!
Yes, I agree the show was great. My recollection was that the Gendan crew felt is well attended and that they were getting many good leads.
At that time, Gendan said they were planning to take a stand for the 2017 AM Birmingham. I have not heard different from them so I assume - probably a bad idea - they have continued their plans.
If the boss says I should go, I will be there. That decision would have to occur soon to make the arrangements.
