Financial crisis or not, deals were still being done in the exhibition halls of EWEC 2009. A record 390 companies exhibited products and services, 33% more than at the 2008 EWEC in Brussels. The three exhibition halls covered 10,000 square metres, a three-fold increase in space from last year's event. This spaciousness gave the misleading impression at times of a low attendance, particularly for stands in the hall furthest from the conference rooms, where several exhibitors bitterly complained about the lack of activity.
