Indeed, there was a 71% increase in attendees from the West Coast states, including a massive increase from California alone as well as an 82% increase from the Rocky Mountain region states. Overall attendance was pegged at 19,000, a slight dip from 2010, with more than 800 exhibitors lining the aisles -- including 100 first-time exhibitors.
