Exhibitor Information

Book yourself a stand with us and cash in on Christmas!


We’ve been running the highly successful Christmas Shopping Fayre at Westpoint, Exeter since 1996. It’s popularity has grown each Christmas to the extent that we now regularly attract around 25,000 visitors each year making it the biggest event of it’s type in the whole of the South West.

With so many visitors relying on the Fayre to solve their Christmas Shopping the word has quickly spread amongst traders up and down the country that it’s an event not to miss. This enables us to take our pick of reputable companies with totally diverse ranges.

All of our regular shoppers know that the Fayre will always offer a wider choice of unique gift ideas than a High Street full of shops. Each morning there’s a buzz of anticipation with long queues of shoppers ready for opening time!


Everyone asks how we attract so many Christmas shoppers each year and the answer’s simple – we spend far too much on advertising!

Our extensive marketing campaigns leave nothing to chance – radio, newspapers, magazines, leaflets, posters, banners… It’s always punchy and it works!


First time exhibitors need to give much thought to picking the size of stand best suited to displaying and selling their lines. Some traders only need frontage while others prefer enough depth to get the shoppers into their sales area.

Our stand sizes start at 3m x 2m and go up to most permutations (Egan Sheepskin Products for example had the same 6m x 6m stand for 16 consecutive years!).

We’ve selected a few photos here from past Shopping Fayres at Westpoint showing how exhibitors have used some of the different sizes of stands.
