The 2011 Cardgains Trade Show will take place on Wednesday June 29 at the Old Trafford International Suite in Manchester.
The show, which is open from 11am until 6pm, will host around 40 Cardgains suppliers across greetings cards, gifts and jewellery, many offering special show discounts and promotions. Visitors will be treated to free lunch, tea and coffee.
This year’s theme of Members + Suppliers + Cardgains = ‘A Winning Formula’ is enhanced by the free prize draw, where every visiting store receives a lotto ticket with 5 lucky dip lines for that Wednesday draw (limited to one ticket per member number). By the time the retailers get home they could have won the jackpot!
