Some do, some do not, some serve tastings, some do not ... keeping in mind that this is an expo for those "in the trade" in one way or another.

So exhibitors are generally wholesalers. Attendees are retailers, media, etc. I have seen bloggers as well.

TeaChatters in general, pretty many ... not including the hundreds I have banned :twisted: , still likely a few hundred on the books.

Active posters, much fewer but still substantial ... just guessing at 10-15 but likely more.

Often they just carry mediocre spam which they come here to sell. :lol:

But then there are the sincere ones who come here simply to contribute and learn.
