MPAPI 2012 event was very successful with approximately 2500 attendees partaking in event activities throughout the week. This event will always stand out as memorable for the joy observed in the attendees and artists faces throughout the week long event. We experienced an upturn in attendance from our two previous years of US economic decline.
