The exhibit hall was a flurry of activity today as exhibitors scrambled to have their stands ready for tomorrow’s opening day. VNU, the producer of Online Information and Content Management Europe 2005, have been boasting about adding some 40 new exhibitors this year. Several of us noticed, however, that a few weren’t brand new, but returnees who’ve been missing from the show floor for a few years. Notable among them were D&B, ICC Information, and LexisNexis Butterworth’s.
Really new exhibitors include Google and Vivisimo (or at least I think Vivisimo hasn’t exhibited before — one of my fellow bloggers is sure they’re a returnee, so I’ll have to ask them to verify).
