Hmm, the same source reports about the previous T.R.A.F.F.I.C. event [silicone valley]
Though the crowd is lighter than usual for a T.R.A.F.F.I.C. event...
-unfortunately I didn't see any registered numbers.
Again, for the show before that [Amsterdam] the registered attendees were 200
So, it seems to me that the New York event [270 peoples regged] is doing as well, or better compared to the last two events, in terms of attendance...
Undoubtedly, the ICAN't Seoul meeting siphoned some people away, but hardly a noticeable effect on the traffic event and no reason for the show producers to consider altering their show's dates.
