Now that the two big shows are history and Chicago got distroyed by the ITA --what does everyone think of the ITAIfeel that we are being sold out for the following reasons:1. The ITA is nothing more than a self-serving cliquish group whose main interest is them not us or the industry2. That this organization is naturally flawed as to where its loyality belongs --the conflict is manufacturer vs. salon ownerour interests are definitely 180 degrees apart.3. Where is the ITA re price-fixing by the lotion companies--not a word said.4. Seems like a do nothing organization that had to stretch to give out awards--an award for getting a lobbying group--should be if it was at no cost to the organization.5. Looked to destroy an existing show and organization(Chicago & looking fit) what's wrong with having more than one group diverse opinions are healthy. First they get rid of Chicago & looking fit then who's next---us!6. Shame shame on SmartTan lost respect for them felt the Nashville show was not as good as Chicago 1999.7. Nashville--sucked can't say anything good about itWhat are your comments and views------------------NickProud supporter TSO

I guess no one really cares --well at least I have something to fall back onI don't want to hear your complaints when reality strikes you in the face and you have no where to turnGuess posting the bs is more important than seriously considering what may happen with our future------------------NickProud supporter TSO

This is either a board controlled by ITA or you people are afraid of ITA or you just don't care--remember when you decide to care there may not be anyone to band with you- just sit back and let the serpent grow so that it may devour you------------------NickProud supporter TSO

Ok, here is my 2cents worth....I am extremely dissappointed with the ITA squeezing out Chicago. Rude, just plain rude. Nashville was actually kind of lack luster. It cost a boat load of money and I really enjoyed Chicago more. The prices at Opryland were extreme in my opinion. Then again, we are a fairly small salon and don't make a jillion bucks a year...just a salon that wants to be the best it can be. It does seem like a shame that THEY (ITA) is making it difficult for us to reach that peak of perfection. I am lost on one thing you said though...about them snuffing out 2 shows AND Chicago. Did I misunderstand or is there another show I don't know about?? Thanks!

Marty & carolDoesn't seem anyone else cares---first chicago, then private label then maybe we'll all have to do profit sharing with themTSO should take a strong position and let the others know as well--I say let's boycott by not paying dues and targeting ETS just like the unions do with different companies and then let's boycott Nashville 2001Remember they will be in Nashville tomorrow at a closed meeting coniving how to screw we the independent salon owners--but unfortunately the sheep don't care they just pay and follow and maybe find a different industry to go to------------------NickProud supporter TSO

Nick,The time for the boycott was this year. They timed that show specifically to destroy the TSO show. No one, or rather, very few people said SH*T. Now, there's no TSO show and the time for boycotting has passed. Nashville alone should keep attendance down, it's a crappy place to be.Don and TSO shoulda kept it up one more year and placed their show ahead of ITA's for 2001. Come on Don, give it one more try. You'll have much more flexibility than they will, beat them at there own game. Your show suffered from there sleazy tactics, not due to content or location. Push it back a few weeks and hit them like they hit you.
