Second Day of Salone del Gusto

Italy - 28 Oct 06

The second day of the sixth edition of the Salone del Gusto saw an increase in the number of visitors from the first day, with a total of 34,400 arriving at the Lingotto in Turin on Friday, including many industry representatives as well as casual visitors. The flow of people entering the Salone was relatively constant from the opening of the event at 11am to the close 12 hours later. In the first two days the total number of visitors reached 58,400, and thanks to the rise in the number of international exhibitors and above all Terra Madre, the concurrent meeting of world food communities, around 40% of those visitors were from outside Italy.
