Not so likely! Far to much Covid about! Even the BBC Strictly has at least one Pro. dancer and a contestant down with the virus. So much for their testing and checking!!
So standing in an exhibition hall with virtually no fresh free flowing air is a No No for me until at least 2022 and possibly even later when indoors! :o

Two club members travelled up to visit on the Saturday, They both reported the same, that relatively low attendance made viewing of layouts very easy and purchasing trader items simple with none of the hassle of the last time they visited where crowds were a problem! Shown in your video around 0.40 to 1.10ish Busy but not excessive. :D

Hope the organisers managed to cover their costs.

It did get quite busy at Saturday lunchtime but before and after and most of Sunday were quite relaxed and less busy. Hornby Magazine who organised it say they had record numbers, pre sales out did the last show without the door tickets! Most of the traders have reported good figures too!
It is certainly not like Warley when it gets three deep in front of the layouts! :o :roll:

Hope they did manage to make a profit and have above average attendance.
But to be honest Hornby or the H Mag would never say that didn't do well! :o

The expo. is not a club event and is really a commercial venture! So whatever they did or didn't make is really a company issue.
Most MR exhibitions are not hosted by commercial enterprises, but are held by a dedicated and very hard working club membership. :D
