Small Press Expo Adds Tables To Deal With Exhibitor Demand

Warren Bernard's note is here. To be honest with you, I didn't even know there was room to expand the ballroom space, but I'm terrible at paying attention to my surroundings that way. That does mean the Big Fall Feel-Good Small Press Show Of The Moment is full up this year and moving forward, at least in that space (and no other space suggests itself, as far as I know, and even if one did I'm not sure they'd want to mess with their current wave of success). The reason this wasn't done right away, apparently, was that the Expo is wary of simply adding tables ahead of a drawing an audience that will support the extra people with stuff to display. So this is something of a calculated risk. The ability of a show like that develop an audience for what it does is something that doesn't get talked about so much, but it's obviously a huge key if not the primary factor for the success/failure of such shows, period.
