“We want to avoid a repeat of this next year, which is why we support the decision and ask that Reed Exhibitions be disqualified as a vendor for future events,” Payne said.
The county commissioners announced this week that they booked the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex using a tourism grant and are working with various businesses to secure sponsors for next year’s show.
Who owns the term Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show? My understanding was that Reed Exhibitions owned that show, meaning they likely have the rights to the name. I’m absolutely fine with disqualifying Reed, because of their behavior. It would be good to see the show continue. It was valuable for the hunting, shooting and outdoor community in the entire Mid-Atlantic region, and it would be a shame to see it die off because it’s handlers were bozos.
