I think to an extent it has lost some of it's "mojo" but I still look forward to it every year. It has become harder for these expos and events to be as huge as they were prior to the amount of social media and connectivity now. Much more important news can be released regularly now and still receive a ton of attention just through people passing it around on Twitter or Facebook.
