The Presence of Fret37, the Acoustic S1, Acoustic Guitar stand Company was a testament to the diversity of exhibitors at the show. It wasn't just about guitars; you could find everything from cords and wires to amplifiers and other sound gear.
Exhibitors undoubtedly appreciated the event's accessibility to a passionate audience of music enthusiasts. The show's format, allowing attendees to bring their musical instruments or related items for sale, trade, or appraisal, created a vibrant marketplace where deals were made, and stories were shared.

The show's hours, from 10 am to 5 pm, allowed ample time to explore the plethora of offerings. From guitars and amps to banjos, mandolins, drums, violins, effects, memorabilia, and more, it was a treasure trove for musicians and collectors alike. The presence of online companies, manufacturers, retail stores, builders, and repairmen added an extra layer of depth to the experience.
