The organisers of SAME 2008 have announced that the event had 42 exhibitors and 800 participants. The numbers are a little down on last year (47 exhibitors and over 900 visitors), but have held up pretty well considering the econmic situation.

The show continues to focus on the local area, with 75% of participants from the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur Region, and only 11% from outside France. Almost a quarter of the exhibitors, however, were from outside France, so clearly the region continues to offer exciting opportunities for all companies.
