Already we have over some extremely high calibre exhibitors confirmed and are looking forward to recruiting an equally high quality group of Hosted Buyers for them to meet and do business with. We’ve altered the ratios of buyer types for this year’s event, based on feedback from exhibitors which means we can cater ever more closely for their needs and continue to provide the very best backdrop for doing business.”
