There were 148,000 visitors during the four day fair whch was for the travelling public. There were 750 exhibitors awith 70 countries represented. Vanuatu was the only South Pacific Nation represented. Jeanette Baude reported that there were good genuine enquiries from the public about Vanuatu with several people stopping by to ask where the country was located. It was good to get our name out there, so people started to ask about Vanuatu, she said. Several bookings have been made to Vanuatu by Cococ Tours since the show.
