Exhibition Manager's Diary
13/6/2015 - A very observant viewer of this web page pointed out to me today that I have not been filling in my diary of progress and comments regarding this year's show. I normally start doing my diary many months before now so I must apologise for being a slow starter! Some would argue this is normal! Anyway, the viewer in question is unable to attend the exhibition this year and is to spend the time travelling to undertake a cycling expedition close to Venice. Good luck in that trip HP! So to update you all: as of today organisation of the show is complete and we are ready to put on a fantastic, inspiring display of all that is good in the hobby. Hopefully you will enjoy the show and continue to support us in our quest to bring you the best from all over the UK. I was given a copy of our show guide a couple of days ago and it brought home to me how much the event has progressed since the first show in 1991 and how good teamwork is so valuable to build for the future. I would never have thought that in 1991 with four layouts and one trader in a one day show that we would build to 105 stands so quickly. Many thanks to all concerned for supporting us in that journey. SM
