The official attendance figures for IBC 2009 have been revealed, showing a modest decrease of seven percent compared to last year.

The NAB show in April saw attendee numbers fall by 20 percent. The improvement at IBC could be taken as a sign of returning confidence among the industry.

With exhibitors removed from the calculation the drop in visitors was only five percent.

“IBC is about the quality of the interactions, and that is where we delivered once again, through a conference illuminated by some remarkable keynote speakers and an exhibition where virtually all the world’s leading manufacturers met virtually all of the world’s key decision makers,” said Mike Crimp, COO, IBC. “People will be surprised at how well we’ve done. We’re not just a trade show, but an event where people can see the results of all the hard work in our industry.”

IBC 2009 featured more than 1300 exhibitors and was attended by 45,547 visitors.
