ENGINEERS and designers often adopt a somewhat lofty attitude towards exhibitions, decrying them as public shows and therefore not meriting serious consideration. But, actually, exhibitions serve an extraordinarily useful purpose since they present the opportunity of seeing exactly “what the other fellow is doing,” and so by the assimilation of new ideas prevent that mental staleness which continuous concentration on certain types of production only is apt to engender.
