Just took a stroll through the exhibitors' hall as reps for nearly 240 exhibits sweated and strained and ripped open cardboard boxes stuffed with material for display and sale.
There's a huge variety of exhibits, from Vietnamese Catholic art to social justice ministries of every stripe to big Catholic publishers (like Our Sunday Visitor, of course!).
It is still pretty quiet here, but tomorrow will be different, experienced attendees of the #rec2012 tell me. Per-attendance registrations number 37,989 people. This is a big place, but that's a lot of people.
