How do things look at IBEX?

IBEX opened its doors today; the exhibitors look crisp and hope to sell big.

But some on the floor told me the weak market has prevented many companies
from sending their usual number of people to the show. The companies have been trying
to curb costs.

One West Coast manufacturer says he's hoping this show will help him boost sales
because the housing slump surely hurt his region. Another manufacturer told me he has lots of customers in Florida, but the ones in Fort Lauderdale do not want to come to Miami.

I also heard that some exhibitors have scaled back their space from previous years.

Perhaps you can shed some light on what's happening this year.
