Bummer, guess there is not much of a reason for me to make the 105 mile drive then.

My only other interest as far as a potential purchase in the near future is a CNC router.
Online at their website I didn't too much about what might be there as far as CNC goes.

I did see a CNC router there. Not sure of the brand, was about 3x3 in size. Didn't pay much attention to it since that's not my thing, but their was at least one there.

There was a seminar set up for basic and advanced CNC.  The advanced is a paid seminar, but not offered in the Sunday schedule.

Thanks all for the replies. Knowing me I will probably end up making the drive.
I could use a break from the shop today anyway and the WX is great for this time
of year so should be a pleasant dive, no snow or ice to deal with anyway.

So let’s revive this post again. Being the new year I was starting to decide on my vacation time and went looking for the date for this years show. It looks like the show has been moved from Somerset to Sacaucus at the Meadowlands Expo Center. Can anyone else confirm this?
  It also seems like there are a lot more vendors listed to be there so I’m kinda excited to go check it out.

Looks like you are correct.  They also moved to March and increased the admission fee a few bucks.  I haven't gone the last 2 years, maybe I will check it out.

I plan to go to the Baltimore show this coming weekend. Baltimore and Somerset are about the same distance for me so doesn't matter as far as distance but Baltimore is an easier drive and plenty of parking.

I’m thinking the show was moved because of the parking. According to the website for Meadowlands Expo Center and reviews I just looked up it says there’s plenty of parking. That has been a problem in Somerset, parking maybe 3/4 mile away and walking they a hotel to get the the show was a pain.
But I also looked at Google earth and don’t see any parking, I guess I’ll find out then.

On Saturday and Sunday parking would be at the buildings surrounding the MEC.  I never had an issue with parking in somerset, but then again I always went early in the day.  The fact it was 20 minutes from home was a plus.

The Meadowlands Expo Center website has this comment on parking:

"Plenty of complimentary parking located in parking lots adjacent to the facility."
