I know this event was a while ago but I attended No-Coast at MGM and I liked the location. I found the maps very helpful. I know someone who was a vendor and she said she did well.
I thought there was a decent variety and the fair seemed to be buzzing when I got there late afternoon on Saturday. I picked up quite a few gifts for people.
I only wish I had had more time so spend shopping at the fair. I had about an hour to shop and get dinner at the MGM but I felt like that wasn't enough time to really see all there was to see.
