MONTREAL, Que. — This year’s ExpoCam was attended by record crowds, show organizers have announced.
Attendance was up more than 10% compared to the 2009 show, breaking the previous attendance record set in 2007.
“It seems like people wanted to celebrate the beginning of the economic recovery,” show manager Joan Wilson said. “We were swamped on Saturday with all the drivers and owner/operators coming in but were pleasantly surprised with the stronger than usual turnouts on Thursday and Friday as well.”
Attendance for ExpoCam, held April 7-9 in Montreal, totaled 10,956 visitors over three days, capped by a turnout of 6,133 on Saturday, April 9.
“Visitors are what count at the end of the day and we delivered more than ever. This is not only good for the exhibitors but I think shows a real improvement in our industry overall and bodes well for the future,” said Joe Glionna, general manager of Newcom Media Quebec.
