Rumors were that attendance would be down at this year’s NAB. From early unofficial views, might be true.
I checked both the South Hall and North Hall main entrances just before 9am this Monday morning. No huge crowds.
This is quite unlike last year’s opening crush at the 9am starting gun last year.
Are folks just sleeping in?
Are fewer people coming to the NAB show?
Official attendance figures won’t be released until Thursday, but this morning’s view says attendance is lower than last year. One vendor estimate (okay, consider the source) was that we’d see 20,000 fewer than last year.
