The outdoor was again one of the focal points of Sports Unlimited, the Spanish trade show held in Valencia last week, but only about 20 companies from the sector participated this time, including Merrell, Original Buff and Regatta. The total number of exhibitors remained largely constant at just over 100 firms, but the fitness & bike segment occupied a larger part of the fair. About 1,000 buyers visited the fair, holding pre-arranged meetings with the exhibitors. The organizers were reasonably satisfied with the outcome, but felt that it will draw a larger number of exhibitors and visitors when it moves to new dates at the beginning of March next year. They are also considering an expansion of the territory served by the exhibition to North Africa and the Middle East.
