How are the IRBA shows in CA...specifically, the upcoming Del Mar?

I'm planning to go to Del Mar next week and was wondering if anyone has an idea how big it will be or who will be there. The IRBA site does not say, and it wasn't updated until just recently. I'll email them, but if anyone has experiences, I'd love to hear your opinion(s).

I'm particularly interested in geckos, but any input would be appreciated.

Thanks

I went to the IRBA in pomona in december and it was really cool. Alot of booths. From what I hear, Del Mar is even larger so it should be very good. as far as who will be there, i don't know. I had the same problem as you as far as trying to find out via the IRBA site.

Years ago I use to go to the San Diego ones, they use to be the shizznit, but I have heard that it was going downhill the past couple years, and may even be the reason for the move to Del Mar(smaller venue? don't know if it is). So I don't know first hand, but apparently the Pomona ones are getting better. Have never been to one there, but I'm going to hit at least one of those this year.
Not a Gecko person, so don't know if that would make a difference, either
Guess I'm not much help on the question, unless the reason for the move to Del Mar is because of less participation.
Maybe someone has been to both shows the last year or two.

I've been going to the San Diego show for years and most of them are pretty good. Not sure why Ray changed the venue to Del Mar but it could be the San Diego show Is In an old building in a bad part of town. Del Mar should be a much nicer place to visit. Parking sucked at the old place and all the homeless people kind of bugged me.

I go to the IRBA shows regularly in both San Diego and Pomona. The move from the old show hall downtown though is because renovations are being planned/work done at the old show site. I've attended many events at the Del Mar Fairgrounds and like the change myself, it's a lot nicer location and should have a lot more "elbow" room.

How do they compare, as far as numbers and/ or quality of vendors? I'm going to try to attend at least one of the shows this year, if 2 or more trips are feasible, I'll go to one of each, but if it looks like only one trip this year I need to pick between the 2. Haven't been to the SD show since 2001 and have never been to the Pomona show.
