Pentax / Ricoh not on exhibitors list for this month's Photo Plus Expo

Exhibitor List | PhotoPlus Expo

So they won't be showing off any new DSLRs at the show.

Doesn't mean nothing's coming, of course.

Question is, WHY aren't they showing up 2 weeks after launching a new flagship? Doesn't make much sense unless they've figured out they get all the publicity they need from the net

Adam,
Just a thought but they may be co-operative in either/both Adorama or B&H since they're the major net distributors and probably get more traffic with the color displays than a single booth buried in the corner.

After reading our wild speculations and unrealistic expectations, they're applying a new tactic: launch and hide

Maybe The Salon de la Photo in Paris early november is the right place to show all new products.

The marketing team is still exhausted from setting up the pup tent at the Denver zoo last winter.

Interestingly, Rikon, a Ricoh distributor of copier equipment is there?
perhaps that is a spelling mistake, intentional or not

That must be the Canon fanboy's equivalent of our "Canikon" slur.

I suppose Rikon (Ricoh + Nikon) sounds better than Penon.

In this day and age I'm surprised there's any industry "expos."

Maybe a communications firm has rented/reserved a stand for them.

After all, it's Weber Shandwick (New York) who are contacts for Theta,

look at the middle of the page: https://theta360.com/en/info/news/2013-09-05/

The new reflex will be at this show and visitors will be able to manipulate and try it

The PhotoExpo is for professionals. Why would Pentax want to have a both there? Not their market.

Pentax had a booth there in years past when I was there. How about the 645D ?
