What Does Tradeshow Success Look Like?

Read on for key figures and statistics from Intertraffic Amsterdam 2022

Exhibitor or visitor, we all know the buzz of leaving a tradeshow hall after a successful event. Business deals in the bag, big contracts won, exciting new technologies acquired, there is nothing quite like the feeling of satisfaction of a job well done. But how do event organizers feel once the exhibition hall stands empty?

After a couple of years of delay, thanks to Covid-19, Intertraffic Amsterdam 2022 signified a welcome return to the buzz of the tradeshow hall for many parking professionals around the world. The 35,000m2 show floor was packed with visitors shaking hands, hugging, and doing business together, and it shows in the exhibitor and visitor statistics. So, just like the visitors and exhibitors, the Intertraffic Amsterdam team must also be basking in their success.
