This year’s IBC recorded a slight drop in visitors, but those who did attend the Amsterdam trade show had a greater number of exhibitors to meet with.

According to IBC’s official statistics, some 33,395 delegates attended IBC – 299 fewer than last year.

However, the total number of visitors stood at 55,128, which was up marginally on last year’s show, which was attended by 55,092 people.

The total visitor count for 2015 was bolstered by an increase in the number of exhibiting companies, which rose from 1,794 in 2014 to 1,887 this year.

The number of staff manning stands also increased from 21,398 last year to 21,733 in 2015.
