The annual fair is located in the prestigious business district close to the famous Bahnhofstrasse and in walking distance to the major galleries and museums and aims to promote communication, sales and contact between the exhibitors and the business, media, collectors and the public. An increasing number of visitors up to 25'000 is expected in 2005.
