Our team of staff reporters and correspondents around the world have been to some pretty exotic locales. But this occasion might be beyond our ability to cover. The hard-to-cover event: the First Chinese Light Industry Exhibition, scheduled for July 17-19 in Pyongyang, North Korea. Media in China are touting this as North Korea's first-ever national trade show. China's People's Daily Online says the show will include "several hundred industrial enterprises specializing in appliances, everyday goods, hardware, plastic, and textiles." The cost of a 3-by-3-meter booth? Just 5,000 RMB, or about $655. But it's too late to sign up -- Nina Ying Sun, one of our Akron staff reporters and our Asia specialist, said the organizer closed the booth sales on May 31.
An out-of-the-way trade show
