Attendance and Demographics

Our total attendance figures are based on the number of visitors who attended the show, not total registrations.

We have changed the way that we now gather the demographics of those attending IBC. Media Activity and Company Activity have been consolidated into one demographic, which is now called Core Business Activity, whilst Job Function has been separated out into Job Function and Job Title in order to provide you with more accurate and usable information. These changes have been made in order to provide you and IBC with a far more detailed overview of the people that attend IBC each year.
