EXPO Magazine used a survey focused on shows’ performance metrics to compile their second annual list. Among the statistics considered by the publication included growth in the following areas: square footage, attendees, exhibitors, revenue and attendees per square footage; all of which were calculated by comparing the conference’s 2010 and 2011 numbers in those categories.
