“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
