Hello simrangambhir-ga,

How many conferences will make for a satisfactory answer? How many for
five stars?   I'm asking because I answered a similar question for you
earlier this years and despite very extensive results you were not
very happy with the answer.
Q: Retail Industry Conferences and Trade Shows - Where and When

I'm reluctant to undertake this research because I'm not sure I can
provide a satisfactory answer.

I look forward to your clarification.

Hi czh, 

I'm not sure what is leading you to believe i was not happy... was
very happy with your answer and gave 4 stars. Perhaps my expectations
are very high as giving 5 stars is a huge deal, otherwise how would i
differentiate "very good" answers to what i believe to be

This question is in relation to a specific timeframe, and to get a
very good raiting, there is no specific number of conference listings
required... but if you list the ones you find and do the following:

Give the link
Give a brief outline
Give the timeframe the conference is in
Give the cost of the conference

Then i would rate it as exceptional.

Please don't be under the impression that i somehow thought that your
previous answer was not very good... (if you are basing the quality on
the size of the tip by any chance... please don't do that either...
i'm a part of a tipping culture... so that is just a cultural

meant to say "not part of a tipping culture" :-)

I can find you a number of links to shows like these that are coming
up in the next few months:
Tokyo International Gift Show
September 5-8

However, the cost information is not usually readily available,
without stepping through an elaborate registration procedure.

Would you accept a list where cost information was only included if it
is readily available?

Let me know what you think.


P.S.  Researchers here generally aim to provide five-star answers, and
anything less is taken as a sign of customer dissatisfaction.  It's
just a part of our culture, I suppose.

Clarification of Question by simrangambhir-ga on 14 Aug 2006 19:06 PDT

Yes, i would accept a link without costs if the costs were hard to get to. 

As for 5 star answers... understand what you are saying about the
culture, but then how would i differentiate between an answer "that
blew me away with its insight" vs "a completely relevant and
satisfactory answer that answers all the questions".... i will think
about what you have said though...

Thanks for being patient...this was a bit tougher than I imagined.

Here is the list of shows I found...I extended the dates a bit into
November, in case these are of interest as well.

As I mentioned earlier, pricing information is particularly difficult
to pin down for some seems to not be a habit of many of
the trade fairs in Asia to post an admission price, and the posted
exhibitor pricing was quite complex.

Let me know if there is anything else you need on this.

All the best,
