Commenting on the pre-registered figures, Show Director Theresa Raymond said, “We are delighted to see such a substantial increase in the pre-reg numbers. It is also very pleasing to see such a long list of buyers from high calibre stores throughout the whole of the British Isles. The addition of MidPoint at Manchester this year adds extra gravitas to the show, and gives buyers multiple options to select ranges from volume to high-end. We are expecting a show full of interest and energy.”
