Hussain Rauf, General Manager of organiser Maldives Exhibition and Conference Service (MECS), told Sun Online that 600 participants would occupy 175 stalls at the exhibition. Over 2,000 brands from 35 countries would be showcased, he added.
“The secret to a record number of participants this year is the hard work and support of the team in the past 17 years,” Rauf was quoted as saying.
