Looking Over The 2022 NWCDC Info – My Search for Innovation Continues
A few things that I noticed in the 2022 NWCDC info on the annual Vegas conference. I covered it with a press pass last year. The dates are 10/19/2022 to 10/21/2022.

I hand-counted 220+ vendor booths this year from the vendor booth list. The number always increases right before the conference.
