On the other side of the booth, there were 1,123 exhibitors this year, compared to 1,000 exhibitors in 2011. This might explain the reason for a multi-level exhibition floor this year, with many exhibitors and the Interoperability Showcase exhibiting on the lower level of the Venetian Sands Expo Center.
