Comexposium, the organiser of last week’s Intermat exhibition in Paris, France said the show was attended by 131,624 individuals, with a total of 183,000 entries to the event over the course of six days. This represented a fall of -8.5% compared to the last time Intermat was held in 2012, when there were more than 200,000 entries.

It added that 35% of visitors – about 46,000 people – came to the show from outside France. Comexposium said international visitors came from 169 countries, with the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey being particularly well represented.

A total of 1,410 companies exhibited at Intermat 2015, which represented a +5% increase on the total in 2012. Of these, some 200 were part of the World of Concrete Europe section of the exhibition, which was held for the first time in co-operation with US-based Informa, which organises the annual World of Concrete exhibition in Las Vegas, US.
