We visited this now well established (in its third year) exhibition. A straw poll of exhibitors gave an overall very positive feeling, as last year.
Once more there was a good atmosphere around the show with many of the smaller and innovative frame designers exhibiting as well as more established brands and distributors.
It was also interesting to see more lens companies supporting the show, as well as equipment companies, making it an all round exhibition catering for every one of the profession’s needs.
Two criticisms though!
The blast of very cold air that welcomed you at the entrance where the coffee bar was situated you did not want to hang around there – and (it was not the organiser’s fault here) the closing of the Dartford Bridge due to high winds which meant it took over 7 hours to get home!
