This year’s Giving & Living trade show celebrated its 50th Anniversary in style. Thanks to the glorious 2013 summer and all the special Golden features at the show, there was a much more positive atmosphere than in recent years, with visitors looking forward to another sunny season of strong sales in the South West.
“A great show this year. The figures are in and we are 34% up on last year, and nearly equalled our best year ever at the show.” Phil Coatham, Pocket Money Plus
Many companies reported record breaking sales, and lots of this year’s stand holders have already re-booked. The many visitors to the show enjoyed the warm and friendly atmosphere, often returning several times over the four days.
“Giving & Living is the first trade show of the year that I attend and I usually do 90% of my business at the show. It is the first chance to see new products laid out in a way that is easy to deal with the exhibitors without being pressured by too many people crowded in too small a space.” Laura Huxtable-White, Avon Beach Limited.
The next Giving and Living trade show takes place from Sunday 11th-Wednesday 14th 2015. You can keep up to date with news about the show at www.givingliving.co.uk or why not follow the show on Twitter at @giving_living?
