The 2013 edition of SPX has already kicked off with a radically enlarged show floor—the number of tables has been raised to 280, meaning there are an estimated 600+ exhibitors at the show. That is a lot of staples. Just how this bigger show floor translates into sales will be the big story of the year.
I’ll say one thing: the exhibitors definitely made a dint in the free pizza at last night’s Exhibitor’s Reception. Indie cartoonists are to free pizza what army ants are to Irina Spalko.
