COUNTRY RADIO SEMINAR (CRS) 2012 has just released its official attendance figures, and the seminar, held WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 21st-FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24th, was up for the fourth consecutive year, rising 9.6% over last year’s totals, according to CRS officials.
A total of 2,904 registrants attended this year’s seminar, which includes 2,190 full registrants (attendees, exhibitors, panelists and sponsors) and 714 participant registrants. Participant registrants are defined as attendees that register for individual CRS events or purchase single day seminar passes only. Total CRS attendance in 2011 was 2,649, with 2,181 attendees in 2010 and 2,106 in 2009.
“With attendance jumping nearly 10% this year, daily superstar performances, improved on-site conveniences and more event sponsors than ever before, CRS 2012 was a great success,” says CRS Exec. Dir. BILL MAYNE. “This is the fourth straight year we’ve enjoyed growth in our attendance numbers, and it really goes to show how the Country radio industry is not only remaining relevant, but thriving in today’s media saturated marketplace.”
CRS 2013 will be held FEBRUARY 27th-MARCH 1st at the NASHVILLE CONVENTION CENTER. For info visit www.CountryRadioSeminar.com.
