It’s good to see that trade shows are doing well in the economic recovery. Whilst PCIM Asia reported strong results, with a 3% growth in visitors and 10% growth in exhibitors, the organisers of productronica are already predicting a strong year. There is a 15% increase in exhibitors and the space that they have booked and with over 1200 exhibitors, productronica 2011 looks like being a great event.
