With 15,200 daily passages through its turnstiles, the number of visitors at the GDS fair held in Düsseldorf earlier this week was reportedly down by about 7 percent from a year ago. About 44 percent of them came from outside Germany. A total of 800 brands exhibited at the trade show and another 100 at the simultaneous sourcing show, Tag it! According to the organizers, the visitors who came were apparently satisfied with the offer and the improved layout. Half of them found new suppliers. The next show will take place on July 26-28.
