2013 AMERICANA – a look back at the best AMERICANA so far
2013 was probably the AMERICANA so far. 45,000 visitors came to see Europe’s most popular event for western fans and world class sport in 42 categories, among them was the FEI European Championship in Reining. This meant excellent business opportunities for the 282 exhibitors. Two thirds of the companies present said that business had been very good or good. 26 percent said they were content with their sale numbers. * “It was sensational,“ said project manager Karlheinz Knöbl. “Many exhibitors had never experienced so many visitors before. Some of them were sold out long before AMERICANA was over. Many of them wanted to confirm their participation at the 2015 AMERICANA right then.”
