The 2016 edition of Convene that took place in February 2016 in Vilnius was its most successful yet, Exhibition Director Jolanta Beniuliene reported. For the fourth consecutive year the show drew a record number of hosted buyers, exhibitors and participants. In total, there were 167 hosted buyers and 87 exhibitors from 10 countries.
While the number of total participants increased by 22 per cent, the number of hosted buyers and exhibitors increased by 6 per cent and 5 per cent respectively. Most hosted buyers came from the UK (15 per cent) and Germany (14 per cent).
"While we are thrilled about our results, which we have compiled in the statistics and feedback section of this newsletter, we are already working hard to make Convene 2017 an even greater success," Jolanta Beniuliene said.
Convene 2017 will take place on February 8th and February 9th 2017.
