The RootsTech Conference doesn't start until tomorrow, but tonight I received some information from the organizers. One fact that struck me is the attendance. More than 2,000 pople registered in advance to attend and the organizers expect more walk-in registrations each day the conference is in operation.
2,000 attendees would be a great number for any genealogy conference in the U.S. However, this is even more impressive for a conference being held for the first time.
I am in a Salt Lake City hotel tonight, adjacent to the Salt Palace where the RootsTech conference is being held. I hope to be at the conference early in the morning.
73 people are now scheduled to attend the EOGN Dinner on Saturday evening.
