BIS 2008 stats vs BIS 2007 Stats Reveals Significant Decline in Attendees

A newly released info sheet from the Building Industry Show at Long Beach registered a significant decline in people who attended. Approximately 1900 fewer people registered; I having walked the floor would guess that a lot fewer even showed. A couple vendors I know said that it was very slow…here’s hoping to a better 2009!
