    Attended the Expo on Friday. It was a smaller show than even last year. Permobil/Roho, Quantum, and Ki were the only wheelchair vendors there.

    Toyota had a booth with conversions by VMI and Braun. There were 5 vans on display. No other conversions were represented. No other car manufacturers were in attendance.

    All in all it was a disappointing show and it seems to get smaller every year.

    I looked at the list of exhibitors for the Expo Los Angeles in February 2019. It appears it will be a slightly larger show, but still not the size of shows I remember in years past.

    Best part of the show was reconnecting with some acquaintances who are vendors.

        Agreed. Barely worth fighting traffic on 101 to get there. Too bad, I was really looking forward to the event.

            I spent a good half hour checking out the chair as well as talking w/ the booth people. It is really well made, noticeably lighter than my TR3 (which has a CF camber tube and a fixed back). If you have the ability to get one I would recommend it.
