True IFSEC 2018 Visitor Numbers?

Can any folks help me figure if there was a big drop off in attendee numbers at IFSEC in London, England? Did other exhibitors see a dip in scanned data?  Seems to us there was a big drop in visitor numbers but published materials are saying different.  It's budget planning for us guys soon and we're not clear right now if this is the show to go to target the UK/European market for next year.  We are also getting conflicting messages from our dealers and tech partners.
