“It is no surprise that we have attracted some the biggest names in the sector to help shape the educational content of the show and we are confident that the format of the event will provide relevant networking opportunities and make the most efficient use of time for both suppliers and visitors. We are committed to providing the investment required to deliver a first class event, that will quickly become an industry must-attend.”
