LONDON After a number of years staging the fair at Richmond upon Thames, and more recently Kensington, we are now taking the show to Chelsea. The Old Town Hall is situated right on the High Street (or specifically Kings Rd!), and will already be known to many of you as it has been a popular venue for design led events for many years..
WINCHESTER Guildhall, which is situated at the end of the High Street, making the venue very accessible. This period building is both well known and easily reached from the town centre car parks. Winchester is situated among one of the most affluent areas in the South, making this an ideal location.
Both shows incorporate full shell scheme (grey Expoloop), to ensure the clean and uniform appearance to the show that is expected for these type of events. It will also be possible to rent display cases and lighting. Uniformed security will be present (24 hour cover) throughout the show and also during the build up and breakdown, along with a uniformed presence outside the venues at closing times.
Private View evenings are held at both events for exhibitors’ past customers. Exhibitors will be entitled to an unlimited amount of invitations to the private views.
