The first Computer Trade Show held at Birmingham's NEC did brisk trade but saw some thefts too.
According to figures released by Stuart Greenfield, who organised the show, over 2,500 dealers and assemblers visited the site.
But some visitors stole items from the site, which was rich in PCs, peripherals and mobile phones.
Greenfield said: "This has been a very successful show. There might have been the odd theft and security could be tightened but that's not too much of a problem."
Andrew Mackenzie, business manager of memory at Datrontech UK, said he thought the show was a success.
That was echoed by Sukh Rayat, managing director of memory distributor Flashpoint UK, who said that the show had proved successful not only for him but for companies like AMD and SGS Thomson, which exhibited on the same stand.
Said Roy Taylor, joint UK MD of Taiwanese Dram manufacturer Vanguard: "What I liked about this show was that there were so few vendors there."
