A further 130 British companies exhibited throughout the fair, so that nearly every one of the 17 halls included British participation. UK visitor numbers were also the highest for years at 2,074. Spielwarenmesse is well known for its internationality with 122 countries sending buyers to the show. Early unadjusted figures for overall attendance showed a 5% increase on 2013 at 75,888.
The next Spielwarenmesse in Nuremberg runs from Wednesday 28th January to Monday 2nd February 2015 and, given that some 90% of exhibitors want to return, new applicants should apply immediately to secure space.
