Classic Records Smashed

classic14-openWith more than 7,300 total attendees, the 2014 Commodity Classic convention and trade show, which took place last week in San Antonio, Texas, shattered previous records for the landmark event.

“We knew it was the biggest event ever, but the numbers really surprised us as we saw them rolling in over the course of the event,” said Commodity Classic Co-Chair Rob Elliott.

And the numbers are impressive:
Total attendance - 7,325 - up 18% from 2013
Number of growers - 3,874 - up 16.5%
First time attendees - 1,261
Trade show companies - 301

I talked to Rob just before the Classic actually got underway and he was already optimistic that it would be a record breaker. Interview with Rob Elliott, Classic Co-Chair
