Attendance at EBACE 2010 reached 11,106 registered visitors by the time the halls closed yesterday.

Last year’s event had the highest attendance to date, with 13,692 showgoers. Aircraft manufacturers have been logging business aircraft sales during the show, though not at the pace of two years ago.
