IBMA attendance numbers

We had a brief discussion on Sunday with IBMA Executive Director Dan Hays about attendance at this past week’s events in Nashville. As always, Dan was careful not to be too specific since final numbers aren’t all in, but early counts point to some big increases in attendance.

Dan said that the trade show looked to have increased registration by about 7%-8%, and that attendance at Fan Fest was up in the order of 40%! I’m sure that the actual attendance figures will be released when final accounting has been completed

Those are great numbers, and everyone involved in planning and promoting the event should take a bow.
