“After 21 years in one location [Kansas City, Missouri], it presents a little more of a challenge to get ready, but it is going to be great. It will be the largest conference ever . . . We estimate the total attendance to be approximately 16,000. These numbers do not include judges, exhibitors, and other volunteers who are not registered participants,” said Tim Lawrence, SkillsUSA Executive Director.
