The Chicago Reader has a follow-up interview with Tony Karman, the president of Expo Chicago and the man charged with “resurrecting” the fair, which ran in September. Here’s the juicy bit:

“Expo, which opened with a Wednesday-night party, got off to a depressingly slow start. Next year’s event—and yes, there will be one, Karman says—will be cut by a day, running September 19-22, with the opening night on a Thursday.”

Sales, according to the article remained “tepid” throughout the event because not many big collectors made the trip. Some dealers found it hard to cover costs. But: the show goes on, it’s just presumably a little shorter of a show.
