These are just some of the comments received:

Karl Walker, Lebus md  “The radical transformation of this exhibition over the past couple of years has elevated it to the top of our ‘must see’ list. It now offers the depth and variety of supplier base to fully justify a two-day trip.  The choice of venue and organisation works extremely well, it is now very much a permanent fixture in our diary.”

James Lowe of Aqua Clean “We have had a really good show, our new easy-clean fabrics have been exceptionally well received and we have been non-stop with existing and new customers.  This show gets better every year and the quality of the companies showing is exceptional.”

Diane Harding of Norfolk House Consultants  “This was Norfolk House’s second year of exhibiting at the London Fabric Show. This year we took eight of our mills – Teksko Velvets and ESC from Turkey, Dolcevita, Home Decor and Mood from Italy and Canete from Spain as well as UTM/JSML from India. We were delighted with the quality of customers we met and it was great to meet so many new ones – from major upholstery manufacturers to high end brands and major retail chains. We look forward to showing again next year.”

Mark Vervaeke, manager of the Economical and Export Department, and division manager, Carpets & Interior Textiles for Fedustria “…the visitors know they will find at London Fabric Show an almost complete offer and that’s why almost all relevant UK buyers are coming over to London. So, for both parties, visitors and exhibitors, the show is a win/win. In a very short time a lot of contacts (and even contracts) can be made. With pleasure I can confirm that next year, all Belgian exhibitors will come back again. We will never let down our British customers!”
