SPX attendance up 19%; Nerdlinger winners!

According to SPX director Karon Flage, it wasn’t just your imagination: there WERE more people at SPX this year. She writes:

Paid admissions were 1772 which is a nice increase of 19% over last year.  Add to that about 150 free admissions from flyers and coupons we handed out, 500 exhibitors and 150 in staff, volunteers, retailers and press we end up with about 2600 people through the doors.


UPDATE: MK Reed sent us a link to the Nerdlinger Award Winners. We were wary of just reporting the winners since the categories are almost the best part, such as “Jen Vaughn, winner of the Fourth Annual Montgomery Burns Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Excellence.
