CRS 2012 Attendance Up Nine Percent

CRS 2013 set for Feb. 27 - March 1

(Nashville, Tenn. – Feb. 27, 2012)  CRS 2012 enjoyed an increase in attendance for the fourth straight year, rising 9.6 percent over last year’s totals, according to Country Radio Seminar officials. 

A total of 2,904 registrants attended this year’s seminar, held Feb. 22-24 in Nashville, Tenn.  That number includes 2,190 full registrants (attendees, exhibitors, panelists and sponsors) and 714 participant registrants.  Participant registrants are defined as attendees that register for individual CRS events or purchase single day seminar passes only.  Total CRS attendance in 2011 was 2,649, with 2,181 attendees in 2010 and 2,106 in 2009.

“With attendance jumping nearly 10 percent this year, daily superstar performances, improved on-site conveniences and more event sponsors than ever before, CRS 2012 was a great success,” says CRS Executive Director Bill Mayne.  “This is the fourth straight year we’ve enjoyed growth in our attendance numbers, and it really goes to show how the Country radio industry is not only remaining relevant, but thriving in today’s media saturated marketplace.”
CRS 2013 will be held Feb. 27 – March 1, 2013, at the Nashville Convention Center in Nashville, Tenn.  Visit www.CountryRadioSeminar.com for more information.
