InfoComm Crowd Up 4% Over 2011

Estimating crowds is not among my meagre set of skills, so any impression that I had that InfoComm didn’t seem overly busy had to be balanced out by that. Turns out, crowds were in fact up over last year.
The just-finished InfoComm 2012 in Las Vegas saw 34,268 attendees, up four percent over a year earlier in Orlando.
Attendees came from more than 90 countries and walked in and by the booths of 933 exhibitors. There was just shy of 500,000 net square feet of exhibit and special events space.
“InfoComm continues to be the one trade show where most professional AV service providers make their important buying decisions for the year,” says Randal A. Lemke, Ph.D., Executive Director & CEO, InfoComm International. “The AV marketplace has enthusiastically embraced InfoComm as the place to make their purchasing choices, network with product and service providers, and enhance skills through our robust educational program.”
The event is back in Orlando, FL a year from now. Steam bath instead of blast furnace, hotels are close, same time zone and I usually behave better there.
