Maybe “Greatest …” is a bold statement, but the USA Science and Engineering Festival will draw over 350,000 people to the Washington Convention Center this weekend. That certainly puts it in the running for the largest three day gathering of science and engineering geeks. We should know, we were exhibitors at the previous two shows. (We’re taking a break this year to prepare for our own Mini Maker Faire next weekend.)
Just take a look at how much space is being set aside for this event:
And while this is huge, 473,000 square feet, it is just one floor of exhibit halls at the convention center. The expo fills another 230,000 square feet on level two with more than 3,000 exhibits and activities. Wow, that’s more than 14 football fields of stuff to see. Maybe you should plan to go both days (Friday is for school groups, politicians, and the press).
Check them out this weekend. More info at their website.
