VIV Europe Hotline, 22 April : Visitor and exhibitor numbers were both higher on the second day of VIV Europe, reflecting, no doubt, the additional journey times for some, and the easing of travel restrictions for others. Visitor numbers reached 4,378 on day two, up from 3,391 on the opening day, while the number of exhibitors increased from 2,315 to 2,373.
