In the large and modern Fair Halls with a floor
area of about 30,000 square metres and with nothing
to equal them in the northern part of Europe, the
visitor will get an idea in a concentrated form of
what Sweden can produce in various branches of
industry. The Fair is conveniently arranged under
the main groups of Swedish products, thus making
it easy for the visitor to find anything of special
interest to him.

Last year the number of exhibitors was 600,
representing about 1,000 Swedish manufacturers. The
visitors numbered more than 101,000 from 25
countries. The Fair is of a purely national character.

The most prominent feature of this year’s Fair will
be the industrial section. This will centre around
those particular industries which have long been
regarded as essentially Swedish, particulary the
manufacture of machinery and other metal products,
electric apparatus and timber in its many forms.

The textile as well as the fur, footgear and leather
will also be well represented.

A speciality will be the exhibition of furs. At
present there are about 800 farms for breeding fur
animals such as Silver-fox, Blue-fox, Crossed-fox
etc., even Mink (weasel tribe), racoon, rabbits. There
will also be an exhibition of food, literature how to
rear animals etc.
