This year felt less crowded since they had "more space" (i.e. dealer room was larger, special events room was moved away from center area, and guest track was in the back (don't know if that was new)).
I loved that there was more room in the dealer room and a nice variety of things. I also liked the food setup the convention center had this year. I know they've done the "line buffet" downstairs in previous years, but this year had more options and variety. Also, since it was self-serve, if you could fit more on your plate, you definitely got your money's worth!
