Joe Davies is full of praise for Autumn Fair after exhibiting there for the first time

Major giftware supplier Joe Davies – for long a stalwart of Spring Fair – exhibited at Autumn Fair International for the first time this week and is all set to return in future years after a first class experience of the event.

The company paid testament to the great customer service offered by show organiser Emap Connect and was pleased to report that business was booming throughout the show. (we walked past their stand several times during the four day show and can confirm that it was heaving throughout).

Giving his verdict of the show on the last day, commercial director Paul Hooker said: “We’re absolutely delighted we came here, the response we’ve had has been beyond our expectations.

“We’ve picked up lots of new retail accounts but one of the nicest things has been the opportunity to meet with so many of our existing customers. We’ll definitely be back.

“The team at Emap has been fantastic and I thought it was a really nice touch offering teas and coffees to all exhibitors in the morning. It’s clear that everyone has worked really hard to make the show a success in a tough retail environment.”
