Besides Serbian representatives, exhibitioners came from all over the world, including the region of Eastern Europe: Hungary, Croatia, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Czech Republic, Russia and Poland.  
During these 4 days the visitors had possibility to see, buy or experience everything which is somehow linked with hunting and wildlife management. Various exhibitioners presented their rifles and other types of weapons which could be used in hunting, ammunition, outdoor clothes and footwear, camping and various outdoor equipment, optics and binoculars, scopes, cameras, equipment for dog training or handling, books, furniture, off-road vehicles, structures for hunting grounds, venison products, artistic pieces with wildlife and nature motives and jewelry.

Besides exhibitions, the visitors could participate various competitions (in shooting or imitating wild animals), attend presentations and lectures or panel discussions. They also had possibility to book hunting trips or adventure journeys all over the world, thanks to many touristic agencies which participated the fair.
In spite competition, the exhibition stand of the State enterprise “Srbijašume” was well visited and raised interest among international hunters. Hunters were mostly interested in group hunts on wild boars and pheasants, individual hunt on high trophy stags and mountainous winter wolf hunt.
