For once attendance actually increased year on year, not much, but you got to start somewhere right?
Combined figures for ATEI and the newly configured International Gaming Expo, incorporating ICE and ICEi, show that a total of 23,080 unique visitors attended Earls Court over the first two days of the exhibitions, constituting a 1.1 per cent increase year-on-year.
ATEI attracted 8,220 dedicated visitors with a further 2,819 IGE badge holders crossing into the coin-op amusements event. This equates to a 1.2 per cent year-on-year increase.
The top represented nations (outside the UK) were Italy (374), Spain (268), Netherlands (173), Irish Republic (161) and Sweden (148). 77 countries were represented on the show floor including the first ever visitor from Azerbaijan.
