The article focuses on the decline in the number of vendors that bought exhibit booths at the annual Business Expo of the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce in Nevada in 2008. The number is down to 225 from the 289 but attendance at the expo stayed at 2,000 visitors. Food sale went up by 20% but alcohol sale went down 2%. According to spokeswoman Cara Roberts, the flagging economy is certainly a factor in the decline of the number of exhibitors as many companies are experiencing tough times.
