We're still over 3 months away from the show and we're more than 50% sold. We're about where we were last year at this time.

Did last year's event sell out? How much larger is this year's event supposed to be compared with last years?

Maybe people are waiting for the last min to get in and offer a lower price on the booths...

Yes, we sold out last year. We've added about 35 more booth spaces this year, but our floorplan is flexible enough that we can drop some of those if we don't sell them. I'm a bit behind in updating the floorplan online right now because we're trying to get the conference program finalized, so there are more exhibitors than are listed on the website right now.

Im sure it will be packed as normal, last year the exhibit hall was full and this year should easily attract another 35, if not who cares

We booked our exhibit space over a week ago, and it was only today that it went up on the exhibit floor site. They're very busy at Interjuncture right now, so there are probably several other spaces already booked.... and just not reflected on the site yet. I'm sure it will sell out again this year.... but regardless, it will be a great show

We have not registered yet. Still debating what registration type to go for. The first year in Chicago we went for full conference and it was a bit of a waste, so last year in Vegas we opted for exhibit hall only.

I see this year the exhibit hall hours are fairly restrictive though. What type of passes did you opt for this year Matt?

We are the same, full pass is a waste but we did get them for this year. Spending so much getting 4 of us out there from UK and Aus that the conference pass is the cheap bit, so just got full passes anyhow. Make the most of the lunch

I think they're better than last year.

In 2006, the exhibit hall was open for 3 days. The first day was very busy, the second day had a medium level of traffic, and the third day had very little traffic. It wasn't worth being there for hours for the few people who came other than just to walk through the exhibit hall. We'll be able to connect with the same number of people in 2 days and make better use of our time.

Don't forget to figure in that people always love to procrastinate and there will probably be a surge right towards the end :-)

I think Hosting Con is missing Vegas. I am at least Chicago is a great town, but you always increase the numbers for Vegas shows.
