Utah is well represented at COMDEX/Fall '90, billed as the nation's largest annual computer trade show and the "annual meeting" of the world computer industry.
The 12th annual show has attracted 1,850 exhibitors from 22 countries and an audience of computer professionals that may top the 118,000 who attended last year.According to Tim T. Brosnahan Jr., a Utahn who is attending the show, the state's computer industry has a high profile at COMDEX.
Orem-based WordPerfect and Novell have some of the largest displays on the floor, said Brosnahan, although it would be hard to top last year when Novell astonished those in attendance with a display of 256 individual computers, stacked in tiers to the ceiling, all operating on their networks.
COMDEX, said Brosnahan, "can skyrocket a company into instant success." Floor space - all 2.2 million square feet of it - has been reserved years in advance. COMDEX is the first annual trade show to break the barrier of more than 1 million square feet of display booth space.
