inhorgenta europe reports 15 percent rise in visitors
MUNICH, February 2010 – inhorgenta europe 2010 reported a 15 percent year-on-year increase in visitors, and said the international character of the show had increased.
“With considerably more than 30,000 visiting industry professionals from 84 countries, inhorgenta europe experienced a growth of close to 15 percent,” the Munich jewellery trade fair said in a statement.
Some one third of the visitors came from abroad, which represents an increase of about 2.5 percent year-on-year.
In addition to Germany, the countries with the largest visitor delegations were Austria, Spain, Italy, Sweden, Switzerland, Greece, the Netherlands, as well as Great Britain and Ireland.
“The atmosphere in the exposition halls was very positive, particularly due to high ordering activity thanks to considerably reduced stock levels among the jewellery and watch retailers at the end of 2009,” inhorgenta europe said.
