One security conference saw booming numbers this year, with the Earls Court venue providing additional attractions for visitors.
The 2009 Infosecurity Europe show had five per cent more people attending, compared to the 2008 event, with organisers saying the move to a new conference facility aided the success.
Earls Court 1, where the three-day conference was held, provided two new theatres, additional visitor facilities and increased educational content.
Dr Guy Bunker, chief scientist at Symantec Corporation, who attended the event, said: "It wasn''''t nearly so cramped with space in the aisles to accommodate the overflow of people wanting to watch the presentations that were being given."
Tamar Beck, group exhibition director at Reed Exhibitions, described the show as a "beacon" which stood out on the sector''''s industry calendar, stating there were "vibrant and creative" stands on show.
Sophie Lawson, marketing manager at Novell, stated she was impressed with the new conference venue, while others commended the popular keynote speech from former home secretary David Blunkett.
The event ran from April 28th to 30th, with the 2010 dates set for 27th to 29th April at Earls Court.
