    Default WEF attendance

    I am interested in being a vendor at WEF the last week (at the end of March) and was wondering if anyone knows how the visitor turnout has been? Have there been many spectators? I was wondering if the free admission during the day has increased the number of people in attendance? Any advice appreciated. Thanks!!!

    I would not spend the money to be a vendor there. If they give you free space fine but many vendors are grumbling. Not enough business even on busy nights. In addition, the last week is usually light

    I was there last week and I would say that WEF was noticeably less busy than in years past - off by maybe 15% or so. That said, there were quite a few people watching the bigger classes; not sure if those folks would also shop or not.

    There were definitely fewer stabling tents - particularly on the Littlewood side, which is where my horse was - but the shopping areas seemed fairly busy. I had to wait a short while when I went to get measured for a new pair of field boots at Der Dau (which I was happy to do; WOW they have some incredible sample boots to look at!!)
