The 25th anniversary of the Association of Film Commissioners International (AFCI) Locations Trade Show was held in Santa Monica on April 15, 2010. Despite a challenging economy, nearly 3,800 film industry professionals attended over three days.
“I thought as an association Executive that it was fantastic attendance on the part of exhibitors and participants,” said AFCI CEO, Lawrence J. Brownell. “Other industries are showing between 25-38% drop in attendance and exhibitors. The show demonstrated the health and vitality of our industry.”
The number of returning and new exhibitors at Locations Trade Show also held steady with 240-plus exhibitors from more than 30 countries showcasing the best locations, financial incentives, co-production programs, local resources, and service providers worldwide.
