what's with gun show prices?

I would like to hear from some dealers who go to gun shows.
In recent years the prices asked by dealers at shows are impossibly high. I hear complaints all the time and what I see confirms it. At the same time the dealers complain business is slow and nobody is buying. And, to top it, for a three day show, many dealers pull out in the middle of the second day complaining no one is buying. If they are not there, how can anyone buy from them? I have owned retail stores and done shows. Just because business has been slow for a couple hours does not mean someone will not come by in five minutes and make a major purchase.
Why are prices so high when common sense tells the dealer potential customers can buy at much less elsewhere?
Why leave early after traveling great distances to attend?
Tis a puzzlement to me.
