The Show has really come of age,” says Organiser, Michele Bridle who has been part of SPATEX’s success story for 17 years.


Moving to a mid-week slot to bring it in line with our fellow European Shows, is an exciting step for us and gives the Exhibition a whole new grown-up feel. We are building on the success of last year’s Show, which attracted an unprecedented 28 per cent increase in visitors. Our aim is to give our visitors real added value, then we know we will have done our job.”
