I was going to go, but we changed the family trip to LA for this weekend, so I'll be flying across the street from the Convention Center the weekend before the Expo.

Next year I may have a booth there.

Personally I think it's worth it; at least once.

I use to go all the time when I lived in L.A., if you go, make sure you wear your sneakers, lots and lots of walking, and before you know it, its time to go home.

I've only been to the Shanghai, Beijing and Shenzhen model expos.
I thought I'd try the Ontario expo this time.

It's not really what you think Richard. More like a big hall just full of vendors selling stuff, not really showcasing new and upcoming products. There is some of that, but not like the China and European Expos.

But there are lots of display models that are out for judging. Usually some very fine works displayed.

Thanks for the heads up.
I was wanting to discover new products and manufacturers.

I am sure they have the latest and updated "Rock-on-a-string" weather station! May have added a spring to the suspending string, as it has to be more sensitive to earthquakes....since it is in Ontario, California!

back when I lived in So Cal, I used the Victor scale to measure Earthquakes, the last one in 1994 (Northridge) was rated as an Oh ST!!!

Richard, the fellas are right, not a latest and greatest stuff event, but you do see some cool stuff out there, and you sometimes run into a good deal.
