    Great run down Christian.
    Any stats on how many Canadians were there?

      Thanks Pete. I don’t have exact figures however over the past few years Canada has had the largest delegation. By the size of the paviIion, the number of visitors etc., it appeared that this year was no different. If I get my hands on more details about Canada’s participation I’ll post.
