Totally buyers out in force

Published:  09 February, 2011

BIRMINGHAM: As the Totally Shows came to a close yesterday, show organisers Brintex confirmed that the show’s second year at the NEC had been another successful one.

“This year, even without a direct cross-over point with Spring Fair International, our visitor numbers were 6116, demonstrating that the shows’ co-location continues to prove its worth to visitors and suppliers,” said show director James Murray.

Next year the Totally Shows will move to Hall 16, putting them opposite the volume halls, which are being relocated to Halls 10, 11 and 12 as part of Spring Fair International’s expansion plans.

“The volume hall buyer profile is closely aligned to our target visitors, so being next to, rather than at opposite ends of the NEC site, will add more value and save time for visitors,” commented Mr Murray.
