Overall Winner Award

Jeremy Thorn, Sales and Marketing Director of Jangro, said: “We were very busy on the first day and struggled to meet the demand for our show offer of a free training programme. During the first two hours our stand was inundated with people and we downloaded over 100 training APPs. Also, we had a great interest in our range of 4,000 products. Our product catalogue was being taken at a very rapid rate and we have ordered more for the remaining days. We were very pleased with both the quality and the quantity of the visitors.”

Competition has been fierce and we've had some excellent winners. Thanks to all the exhibitors that took part and my fellow judges for their diligent work, enabling us to physically judge almost 40 products during the first day of the show.”
