Not too sure if I will be there but thought it would be worth an announcement. I think the guy who is running it does the other Midland entomological fairs which are tiny but this is in a bigger venue. The word entomological show in the UK or fair, usually means lots of what some term creepy crawlies, big spiders and other insects. But the orgainisers point out there will be dealers there in both dead stock and equipment. Britain on floor space alone (two large rooms) has probably the largest entomological fair in Europe, its called the AES but there is only a fraction of deadstock compared with the big European fairs. Not so many British collect butterflies today and the big European dealers do not attend the AES as a result.
The first I heard of it was a couple of days ago when somebody emailed to see if I'd be there. It's much too short notice for me to prepare for it now. I subscribe to most places where such things would be advertised; if they can't be bothered to publicise it they can't complain when nobody turns up.
