Merry Christmas From The OrganisersWe're all looking forward to this year's fayre ... we hope you are too!
THE FIRST Christmas Shopping Fayre was staged at Westpoint back in 1996 and luckily proved to be an instant success with 1000s of visitors attending.
Since then the Fayre has become a very prominent fixture on the west-country events calendar and local shoppers know they can depend on it to solve their Christmas shopping problems in a single ‘all under one roof’ visit!
We’ve always stuck to our main concept of presenting the widest possible variety of gift ideas and essential Christmas goods in a way that makes shopping fun. With low admission charges and, of course, free parking.
Exhibitors are a tough bunch to please but we have earned the support of many of the country’s top traders who all rate the Shopping Fayre as one of the very best organised events they attend.
Relying on their loyalty and word of mouth we easily manage to fill our 300 stands each year and never need to do any canvassing. We never phone or do mail-outs to potential exhibitors. Every one of the traders at the Fayre has contacted us to book a pitch. A far cry from the first year!
We’re proud that a large number of exhibitors from the early days are still taking part and trusting us to help them sell their wares. The pressure we’re under of course is to ensure that we keep on attracting a constant flow of shoppers with money in their pockets each year!
Luckily everybody looks forward to it… our visitors, our traders and so too our skilled teams of stand-builders, electricians and stewards who all enjoy their annual stint at the Shopping Fayre – long may it continue!!
If you’re interested in exhibiting or coming as a visitor and you have any queries do get in touch, we’d be pleased to hear from you.
