Guests to the garden venue, just five minutes walk from the fair, were spoiled for choice with crunchy grilled specialities and delicacies from all over the world. About 2,500 visitors took the opportunity to chill out and relax in a pleasant and laid-back atmosphere with personal, as well as professional discussions, after a stressful day at the fair.
