“We always aim to offer our visitors a really enjoyable buying experience at the show with plenty of innovation, a wide range of products and a day that is fun sourcing new items and meeting old friends,” states show director Mark Saunders. “With an improved layout and a host of new exhibitors the 2023 show is a must for buyers.”
