The 4th MICS (Monaco International Clubbing Show) took place on 6, 7 and 8 November, with three days of interaction and meetings
At this year's trade fair for the night-time entertainment industry, 116 brands presented the latest trends to professionals from all over the world. It is generally felt that the MICS has reached an important milestone, as visitors to the show were more qualified and the overall number of visitors is constantly increasing – a positive sign, which shows a return to growth in a sector that has been affected by the economic crisis.
10,873 visitors, representing 31 nationalities, travelled to the fair. The number of visitors increased by 10% in comparison with the 2012 fair. Most came from nearby European countries such as Italy, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Germany and Belgium, but this year's fair attracted more visitors from the other side of the Atlantic (for example the Caribbean and the United States), China and the Emirates.
The exhibitors noted a significant increase in business and the number of contracts signed, and were very satisfied with this 4th fair.
