The Incredibly Shrinking Exposition

Salt Lake Business Expo

I like to attend the annual Salt Lake Business Exposition. The exposition is the largest business related event along the Wasatch Front. The event is put on by Chambers of Commerce serving the Salt Lake Valley.

Sadly, the exposition seems to be shrinking every year. In years past, the exposition would fill a full section of the Exposition center. This year, the booths were larger, but the exposition filled up only half of the hall. This makes me worried about the prospects for the Salt Lake economy.

I walked to the back of the exposition hall to take this photo. Counting the columns it appears that half the room is empty.
