The target is to bring over 100 international exhibitors from all around the world including Spain, Italy, Portugal, Belgium, Germany, Poland, Austria, The Netherlands, Greece, Canada, The USA, Egypt, Syria and India. The number of international exhibitors in the previous exhibition was 95.

The 14th edition of the fair, organized with the participation of 740 companies, hosted a total number of 81,000 visitors, 18.000 of which were international.
