NAB Show 2019 attracted 91,460 registered attendees from 160 countries, NAB said today.

The preliminary number, based on both pre-show and on-site registration, represents a 1.6% downturn from 2018, when NAB logged 92,912 attendees.

Consensus on the show floor seemed to be that traffic in the North and Central Halls was perhaps a little weak, but crowds in the digital-media heavy South Hall were robust.
