We have once again increased the number of visitors and we have hosted more than 400 exhibitors from 25 countries. We put the focus on international activities: In the Trade Fair Forum we hosted a two hour event with high-level speakers representing the Kingdom of Thailand as well as an evening event under the patronage of the Consulate General of the Netherlands. Furthermore, the international congress "The World Mobility Summit" which took place during the trade fairs was attended by 215 participants from 23 countries, was a huge success."
