AWFS reports 2011 fair attendance

There were nearly 8,500 registered attendees and 500 exhibiting companies at this summer's 2011 AWFS fair in Las Vegas, according to the trade show’s producer.

“We were very happy with the results of this year’s fair,” AWFS executive vice president Angelo Gangone said in a statement. “It’s been a very challenging three years for trade shows in general and our industry in particular. This year’s show had a very positive feeling. The industry may be finally turning the corner, and that is what we are really excited about.

“As a matter of fact, we had the most exhibitors re-sign (for their 2013 exhibit space) onsite, since our show relocated to Las Vegas in 2005 and it appears that we may once again be on the road to growth for 2013.”
