Behind the Scenes Spring Fair NEC

This was my first time exhibiting at Spring Fair, one of the biggest trade fairs in the UK. I thought it would be interesting to show you all a little of the behind the scenes of setting up a trade show. We arrived in Birmingham about 11.00 ish and had to get the car emptied as soon as possible. Stand spaces are very small so its tricky when your first getting your stand together!

Once you've found your stand and emptied the car its time to unpack and start the display!

Last thing to do is cut away the protective cover and your stand is complete, the gangways get carpeted later in the evening.

When the displays are done everyone needs to leave the buildings. I had to get to my accommodation and then had a little time to explore. This was the eve when the snow came, it was pretty much gone by the next day.

The show opened to buyers on Sunday 5th Feb until Thursday 9th Feb, a long show but I did enjoy it.
My next show is the British Craft Trade Fair in April.
