The organisers of PCIM have announced the number of visitors to this year’s event increased by 8% over 2004, with a total of 5,681 vistors from 49 countries. The conference attendees fell from 659 to 538, mainly due to poor attendance on Sunday and Monday, and the organisers have promised to improve their “conference concept” next year. The show remains a key event for the power and control industry, attracting many of the big players.
