Phil Pond from Scarlet Opus says: “The Trend feature has been a part of the Exclusively Shows for four years now and this year, it seemed as if everything had come together. The exhibitors have all clearly worked innovatively during the past year to create a stunning array of products. It was hard selecting products for the showcase simply because there was so much great product to select from”

Phil Pond adds: “We are really excited about creating the Trend Showcase for the 2019 show; it’s going to be awesome.

The exhibitors have even given us wonderful choices for our Game Changer trend which is strictly for genuine eco-friendly & sustainably made products.”
