No business like show business


One often wonders how much business, if any, is concluded at defence exhibitions.

Generally, the PR machine assures questioning journalists many deals are concluded, but the evidence for this is generally sketchy, if not absent.

Kudos to our colleagues at Janes at IDEX. Their Day Two update includes a full list of orders placed on Day 1. Whatever one can say about other shows, here at least is proof of some business being done by someone.
