“For Boland (C24) it was a first experience as exhibitor at the Harrogate Christmas & Gift. As we did not know what to expect, I was quite pleased with the number of contacts that we made. We did not receive any orders, but that is equal to other exhibitions. I found the show well organized, customer and exhibitor friendly. In fact, I cannot remember anything negative.” Jan Willem Tuitel – Boland BV

“The show was a great success for us and we had orders and enquiries from lots of new customers this year. We will definitely be returning next year.” Alan Pimm – Sifcon

“We were really pleased with this show, we saw quality buyers and opened some fantastic accounts as well as taking lots of orders with existing customers for Christmas. We also saw many of the national accounts and had some very positive meetings.” Katy Bosco – The I.S. Group

“What a great show. We moved our stand position for this year, from Hall C to Hall Q, as we needed more space to show our Christmas range and we couldn’t be happier. We saw lots of new customers and many old friends, doubling our order take on 2016. The Christmas show is always the most fun show of the year and Harrogate never disappoints. The organisers did a great job and nothing seems too much trouble, a big thank you to all of them. Have a great year, the Christmas Show at Harrogate has certainly started it well for us.” Bill Cornelius – Playwrite Group plc
