Expos such as PrepperCon 2015 have a lot to offer to regular folks who are interested in emergency preparedness: one shot deals, new products, and hands-on training.
But even though the self-reliance movement has grown steadily for some time now, our expos are most still only regional in scope. They certainly do not compare to the biggest international or national expos in terms of number of attendees or money spent, and it would be unfair to compare them to those events.
Regional is a step in the right direction, because many have been much more localized in years past.
