We moved from the Olympia precisely so we could get more space, and therefore add more events and increase the space of the ones we already had. The show took up 2x more space this year than last, there's no going back to the Olympia. If it seemed more cramped in spots, it's because we had even more people than last year. The vending hall was roughly the same size as last year, just shaped differently.

Fair enough, but it was still cramped. Oftentimes it felt like being in the midst of the throng at the mall during the day after Thanksgiving rush. That's the nature of the beast when attendance keeps increasing though. Overall it was a great show, but I'm glad I'm not claustrophobic. :)
