of foreign accompanying persons at 73.8%.
"...In 1994, 96
exhibitions were held in Singapore, representing an
annual growth rate of 5.8% since 1985 (with 58
exhibitions). 1994, however, registered the highest
growth rate over the last ten years, with a 23.1%

foreign exhibition participants rose at an average
annual growth rate of 6.4% from 1985, but has been
