Deanna Fields reports the totals for 2012's Great Southwest Home Show were higher than 2011. For example, the Public days drew over 1200 the first day, and had 1986 through the doors by 1 PM on Sunday.  They stopped manning the rear doors at 1 PM Sunday, where about half of the home shoppers came into the Quik Trip Center building.  So the likely totals for the show exceeded 2000 adults, not counting youth or children.
