International hunting, nature expo breaks visitor records, says government commissioner
The "One With Nature" World Hunting and Nature Exhibition in Budapest broke visitor records in many aspects, the government commissioner in charge of the expo said on Friday.
The expo which ran between September 25 and October 14, drew a record daily 35,000 visitors on its last day, Zoltan Kovacs said in a video message on Facebook.
The expo’s main venue at the Hungexpo fairgrounds attracted 616,000 visitors, the highest number to ever visit an exhibition dedicated to a particular theme, he said.
Events organised on the expo’s sidelines outside Budapest will be running in several locations until the end of the year, said Kovacs. Programmes so far have been attended by 1,420,000 people, he added.
