Pentax on tour in Sweden

Supposedly I'm not the only Swede here. I just visited the Pentax Sweden homepage. On the news page there is a list of camera/photo-shops in major Swedish cities that Pentax are touring this spring-summer. My impression is that they try to visit the most serious shop in each city. The last place is not a camera-shop but one of the biggest meeting places/bird watching places for ornitologists in Sweden. They say they will show both cameras and tubes/binoculars. But why show cameras there if they don't intend to show some new longer lens?
Has they done like this before, or is this new, I mean in Sweden? They claim they will show now gears and offers. Is this a common thing elsewhere?

Since I'm based near Stockholm I will try to get to Schönherrs on May 5. If there is anyone else of you going there we might even meet?

More: Is this my imagination...since last time I think there are changes on the Swedish Pentax webpage that indicates they are more closely tied to Pentax Europe now?


Here is the news-text (sorry for the Swedish), and the link.

I will, if I can make it.
Do you know if this sort of tour is common? Have they done it in Denmark?

Pentax has always been bigger in Sweden than in Denmark. Some of the bigger stores might have had it before, but I can't remember having heard about it.
