Fall Home Show- To do or Not to do?

I am thinking about doing the Fall home and Garden show this year, two reasons why, off season landscape discounts, plus Holiday Lighting stuff...We can do a simple booth with a pergola and a couple trees with lights on them and garland or what have you to advertise for both any thoughts on this? Although it is in the fall and we should be stocking up a nest egg for the off season, its early enough in the fall to not worry about it I think?
Any pictures of by anyone who has done this or has similar idea?
Thanks everyone!!!

I've been debating the same thing, we have one coming up around here. Have you done a home show before? If so, how has it worked out for you? I am looking to advertise hardscaping in a way that I haven't before and I think this could be it.

We have done locally the Howard county home and garden show and have had great success with it, matter of fact the spring Howard show has been the best but the fall show always gets us through the year of course snow removal being site unseen until it does snow. but we managed to land a $225,000 job off the fall show last year. I just set up a patio (nicolock) and firepit with some plants and our portfolios nothing fancy costs me about 10 man hours to set up and tear down and my salary employees work the spot.
