Industry Support & Media

We have put together a list of highly regarded retailers, brands and designers to form a steering panel for the forthcoming show. We meet as a group and on an individual basis to discuss the latest challenges and technological developments that they have experienced and this helps us form the basis of the conference programme and other areas of content within the show.
