Many of the 1,800 attendees visit COMMON's 92 Expo vendors this year in Nashville.
By Chris Smith
COMMON 2008 by all standards was a very good show in the eyes of vendors who greatly help to support it. It didn't matter that Nashville was deluged by a series of thunderstorms during the show because all of the 1,800 attendees and 92 vendors were well-protected under the glass dome of the Gaylord Opryland Hotel complex, an amazing environment with all the hotel rooms, exhibit halls, restaurants, and nightspots enclosed inside a biosphere-type environment that is adorned with plants, walkways, rivers, and streetlights. The main complaint visitors had was that it was so large and complex they were constantly getting lost.
