28,586 People attended IAAPA's 2001 show in Orlando this year, making it the third largest event ever for the association. Buyers came from 82 countries to view the products and services of 1,265 exhibitors in 568,800 net square feet of exhibit space. The Thursday night social at Universal Orlando’s Islands of Adventure amused a party of 3,896.
"Traditionally, IAAPA is a show where you spend brief moments with potential clients. The attendees this year were educated and informed, and we are excited by the business we generated throughout the week," stated Terry Reeves of Dippin’ Dots.
