“IBC typically brings out the best in people and technology,” said Mark Birchall, Tradefair Managing Director. “By carefully positioning our clients in the differently themed halls best suited to their offerings, we are able to ensure that those we represent are given maximum exposure to reach their target audience.”
Celebrating its 30th anniversary of managing Government supported pavilions and trade missions, Tradefair provides a broad range of services for the UK companies it represents, including managing grants from DIT; providing extensive logistical support for the group pre, during and post-show; PR & Marketing; and overseeing the daily operation of each group stand, which frees the UK exhibitors to focus on sales and solutions rather than stand logistics.
