BaselWorld has closed its doors for another year and has reported a 17% increase in visitor numbers compared to 2012.
This year’s show will be remembered for a generally upbeat vibe, a new look and positive investment.
The 41st show, which was hotly anticipated thanks to a hall complex revamp by Herzog & Meuron, welcomed approximately 122,000 visitors over eight days, which was a 17% increase on last year.
The event featured 1,460 exhibitors from 40 countries.
The BaselWorld organisers have reported that those attending brands questioned said business volume for the first week exceeded 2012. A spokesperson said: "The past eight days were more than encouraging and give every reason to believe that results will match, if not outperform, those of 2012.
