    I heard HostingCon attendance was down...

    Apparently you need a ticket to get in and quite a few people didn't know how to respond...ba-boom-chee

    All joking aside, attendance numbers are 34% ahead of last year (this same time out from the show). We also have 50 new exhibitors in an expanded exhibit hall. We are expecting our largest HostingCon yet.

    Can’t wait to see all of you there!

    Actually, I stand corrected. Attendance is currently 35% ahead of last year

    Below is a portion of the graph that's tracking our attendance along with a key. The number 20 at the bottom represents days away from the conference. Today is 19 days out.



    Lots of people tend to do things at the last minute. HostingCon will be packed and the Geeks Gone Wild shindig will be sold out.

    The real question is...who will appear in the late night infomercials?

    The cPanel party is now the benchmark for HostingCon attendance? I have about 20 people in tow from our company and none will be attending a cPanel party, afaik.

    I just did so too! Something tells me this year's Hosting Con is gonna be EPIC! My company is one of the new 50 and all my colleagues have signed up for almost all the parties.

    For those arriving early on Sunday, we are throwing an informal pizza cum pubcrawl session, so hope to meet some new friends before the event starts. =)
