Event organisers laud 10% attendance rise for TFM&A

10th March 2010

The Technology for Marketing and Advertising (TFM&A) show saw attendance rise by ten per cent this year, with over 10,000 visitors passing through the doors over two days.

Event organisers were pleased to have passed the milestone as the show celebrates its tenth anniversary.

Visitor numbers have grown cumulatively by 107 per cent in the last three years. In 2007, 4,544 people went to the show and this year total attendance is expected to be 10,656, pending the ABC's audit.

There were 180 exhibitors at the most recent event and Chris Underhill, chief executive of smartFocus said the show was the busiest he had ever seen it.

"To see any launch event through to its tenth year creates a sense of huge pride, but to see the amount of growth that TFM&A has achieved is truly elating," commented group director Mark Snell.

Event organisers Haymarket Exhibitions recently announced that Nursery World Show attendance was almost double this year compared to 2009.
