Official comment from the show’s organisers portrays a “large scale show” with plenty of new product on show. However, according to one international visitor InterGame spoke to, the show was two-thirds the size of last year’s event, which itself was two-thirds the size of the previous year.

“The show is definitely on it’s last legs,” said InterGame’s source. “There were hardly any international visitors and while there were posters everywhere advertising next year’s show, celebrating its 20th anniversary, there were no confirmed dates.” Last week’s show saw Taiwanese companies including IGS, Saint-Fun, Feiloli, InJoy Motion, Weche and Subsino to name just a few, support the show. While the international manufacturing scene was represented by the likes of Namco Bandai, Sega Amusements, Barron Games, MEI and Suzo-Happ.
