Shawn - there are two simultaneous meetings on Wednesday: a Walmart US associate meeting and a Walmart International associate meeting. We have approximately 5,000 associates representing 27 countries in attendance at those two meeting so it's not uncommon to see empty seats at the Bud Walton Arena, which holds about 19,000 people.

Shawn - to answer the second part of your question, all types of associates attend. The countries, stores, clubs & distribution centers are able to select representatives based on customer service, involvement in the community, solid performance or tenure with the company. We think it’s quite an honor to be selected and the associates I've talked to in my 4 years certainly agree.

In the slideshow from the Celebrate Associates week, why are all of the upper level seats empty? Also, what 'level' of associate was brought in for the celebration? I ask not because I want to slam you for not bringing in all ~450,00 employees but am curious as to why you wouldn't want tto fill all the seats and give more people a chance to be there. Also, perspective of the shot can make a mountain out of a mole hill so to speak. A close up shot can make 50 look like 1000.
