OK, I was a little optimistic about my Fabtech 2015 attendance numbers, as the organizers advised that about 44,000 passed through registration. But that’s still an 8% increase over the attendance at the 2013 show in Chicago.

In my blog, I commented that “…crowds can be deceiving and sorting out the badge colors to establish exhibitors from attendees … is difficult.” I was right, as it turns out that about 30% of the show attendance is made up of exhibitor personnel.

In the final analysis, it’s the number of qualified leads that determine if an exhibitor had a successful show and I have been getting positive comments from exhibitors that Fabtech 2015 produced in this regard. So, only one mea culpa for the exuberance in my earlier blog.
