We are now well into show season for 2018 and the offices at Elsie B Ltd – The UK & Ireland representatives for IFEMA are a hive of activity.
The best thing about this time of year (in our opinion) is that although the weather here in England is generally grey and murky, we get to visit various shows and start our exhibitor recruitment for the Spring season and so are often immersed in a world of sunshine and happiness, rather than worrying about how cold it is outside.
Having started our UK show visits for the year it has been great to see the uptake in interest by UK exhibitors in finding out more about exhibiting in Spain. We are hopeful that UK exhibitors are beginning to put concerns about Brexit behind them and focus more on the brilliant opportunities for them in the Iberian peninsula.
January, February and March bring some exciting show opportunities, and the team have just arrived back from a whirlwind trip to visit FITUR which was amazing (more on that in our next post).
Following FITUR, IFEMA plunges straight into Intergift, Bisutex and Madridjoya – all of which are a must visit for anyone looking at the latest gifting, décor, accessories and Jewellery trends. Again, we have many UK and Irish companies registered and ready to go.
With security at the forefront of everyone’s minds these days it is going to be interesting to see all of the innovative products this year at SICUR – The International Security, Safety and Fire exhibition in February. The ElsieB team will once again be on the floor at IFEMA so if you are thinking of exhibiting at the next edition and are visiting let us know and we will arrange to meet up and show you around.
We are so excited for the first quarter of 2018 and cannot wait to see the UK & Irish companies grow from strength to strength as more of us take part in exhibitions at IFEMA.
