You can feel the buzz here, buyers are so pleased to be back. They are hungry and have come out to see something new and fresh – so for us we had an amazing first day. We actually had one of the best days ever at a trade show. We had people queuing for 20 minutes or so to see us, all fantastic stores – it has never been like that! We are so happy with the amount of quality visitors – it was a really really good day!’
Becky Furbank of Anne Furbank commented, ‘It was great to be back at a buzzing Scoop X Pure. A condensed and well curated version of the two, marrying together beautifully with some great, quality brands. I bought the collections I had targeted before the show but also picked up a couple of new brands. Roll on the next one!’
