    This thing was a nightmare. We arrived 30 minutes after the opening time. There was well over 400 people in a room designed for less than 200. Strollers as big as a condo, wheelchairs, people talking and socializing in aisles where two people would have a problem passing each other and to top it off a mini food service with lunch served in a space for many more vendor tables made getting around the room impossible. I’ll never return to another one of these. I was able to see maybe five of the many vendors displays. I was ready to buy but walked away empty handed.
