    My wife and I, as well as my 13 year old daughter attended the 2012 Home Show (International Centre) on
    Saturday Nov. 3 at approx. 12 Noon. We were excited to see some of the new products
    on hand and sample some of the “gourmet” foods available for tasting. Within 10
    minutes of our arrival a man selling some sort of pumpkin seed extract was shoving a
    spoon in our (and others) faces attempting to have us try it – when people refused
    he was shouting out, and I quote “that’s right people single file blinders on”. Five
    minutes after that incident we walked by a man selling some sort of day or summer
    camp experience – it was our second walk by him and he compared us to the
    “Flintstones” (i.e. walking by the same scenery multiple times). Are your vendors not given a code of ethics? Why so rude ? Then, to our surprise, in order to receive tasting samples (unless of course you wanted the pumpkin concoction) you are required to purchase $1 tickets – WHAT ???!!!. We were done after that – we drove all the way from Kitchener to attend and were completely disappointed with the entire event. The only plus was the free Toronto Star Newspaper I received on the way out – which, after the entrance fee and gas cost me approx. $60 +. I have been to many a trade show as a vendor and have never treated people in this manner, and our samples were free – it’s the cost of doing business. By the way – the lady selling “sample tickets” sure looked lonely while we were there. You need big changes to this event – I can’t believe anyone would return if they experienced what we did.
