FINAL FALL MARKET NUMBERS
Congratulations fellow fall Market-goers…we survived! We weathered the construction, the rain, and we managed to make it a successful Market in spite of the odds. But we should have known that some unpleasant weather and a little…let’s call it…”reconfiguring” of the convention center weren’t going to keep you from making your way to all of the fab new products waiting on the other side of a little chaos.
This year’s Market in Houston drew 2,634 registered attendees, with 1,614 of those people also enrolling for classes and/or events. 1,062 people enrolled for Schoolhouse Series, and 1,169 for Sample Spree.
On the Market show floor, there were 514 exhibitors in 1,162.5 booths. 122 of those exhibitors also participated in Sample Spree. And 46 exhibitors were entirely new to the show.
