NAB Show attendance up 6.5%


The improving economy appears to have boosted attendance at the NAB Show in Las Vegas. As previously reported by RBR-TVBR, major sessions were more crowded than a year ago. Now we have the official attendance figures from the NAB.

Total attendance this week is 88,044, up from 82,650 in 2009.

That 88,044 includes 23,900 international attendees from 156 countries.

“Content professionals from across the globe turned out in force at the NAB Show, and we’re delighted by the extraordinarily positive feedback from both attendees and exhibitors,” said NAB Executive Vice President Dennis Wharton. “The uptick in attendance and dazzling technology on display here in Las Vegas demonstrates again the NAB Show’s enduring popularity and status as the premiere global event for the content marketplace,” he added.
