“It really was a cracking show and in my opinion the best selection of cards and suppliers in the seven years it has been running. The highlight for me is always going into Springboard and hunting out the next big thing!

The real stand-out find for me was Two Beans in theSpringboard section, who created a lot of buzz around the show. I managed to place my order first thing and the lead times were two – three weeks, by the end of the day they were quoting four – six weeks, so I was delighted to first on the stand!
