I followed the link here from the KOH post. Since this is 2 minutes from my door, I was interested in it. I can't find ANY info about it. The facebook link is a dud, and it's not even on the Suburban Financial showplace web page.

I'd not be betting on this happening since the OP hasn't even been on the board in a wee bit...

Then a bunch of vendors signed on for 2012 with high hopes, and now there is no advertising.

I sure hope he has a plan and there will be some heavy advertising for atleast 2 months before the show...

I remember he had to cancel a show too. His track record isn't that great. I know Rob (guy who made this post) was part of the organizing. I am interested in setting up a booth there if it happens.
