Vito Artioli, chairman of ANCI, said: “The mood was really positive and sizeable orders were placed.
“Not only was there an increase in visitors, of course significant in itself; we also saw an even more interesting fact, in the consolidation of the brands represented by the buyers. A double success then which was also signalled by the fact that orders recovered”.
