The trade fair 2013 opened in RDS on Sunday 19th May. The attendance was excellent and buyers were delighted with the extended show. The return of some previous members, and the introduction of new companies added to the success of the show this year.
On Monday and Tuesday we had the buyers from Unicare / Doc Morris, McCauley Chemists, Mulligans of Waterford, Health Express, McCabes and Heitons. The Buyers all expressed their approval for the displays and products available and we appreciate their support for Irish indigenous companies, helping to make a profitable Christmas for distributors and retailers alike. New Members were very happy with the footfall passing through and the introductions made.
Attendees also expressed their approval for the combined event this year. The fact that they had only one venue to visit made their job much easier. The extra companies exhibiting in the Main Hall gave the show a really busy feelling and added to the colour and glamour. The event was described as a "very positive" experience adding to the feeling that the economy is taking a little turn for the better.
