While it is true that many exhibitions and trade shows are year round events, some types of exhibition benefit from being staged during the summer months. Particularly those aimed at outdoor trades and leisure pursuits. And also those that target products and services that are popular in September/October time.
If you’ve got great new products to be enjoyed in the good weather and the start of Autumn, get along to one of these shows to attract the buyers.
Here, we have put together a list of the type of exhibitions you might attend during the summer, and what you might find there.
