This year’s Schoolwear Show, taking place on 13-15 October 2013 at Cranmore Park, Solihull, has experienced increased interest from new exhibitors, with the event already sold out. Along with a high level of returning exhibitors, more new signings mean a wider range of product will be available at this year’s show.
Show organiser Force 12’s new strategy of releasing visitor information earlier in the year has proved a positive move. Registrations are significantly up on last year, with over 200 already completed. A link-up between Force 12 and CWB magazine to increase pre-show promotional advertising and information throughout the year is set to produce further interest and registrations, together with a new, more user-friendly show website available at the end of July.
