Alison Church, Event Director at easyFairs UK Ltd, commented, “We couldn’t be more delighted with how the show went last week. Off the back of an incredible reception to our London event back in October, to be saying that this is our best event ever was a tall order for the show….but one I’m very glad to say we’ve achieved. There was such a buzz of positivity in the hall, from both visitors and exhibitors, it felt great to be part of such a vibrant industry.
