Next year’s ZOW show in Germany will revert to a four-day format.

The ZOW exhibitor’s council and event organiser Survey have decided to drop the Friday from the Zuliefermesse Ost-Westfalen exhibition because it was poorly attended at this year’s show. Survey said the 2003 event showed that exhibitors and visitors alike preferred a Monday to Thursday cycle.

ZOW 2004 will be held at Bad Salzuflen from February 9-12 and will include a “casual evening event” on the last night to celebrate the 10th anniversary of ZOW.
