At the show you will find a list of all the companies that are identified as being on the Coastal Path, along with their stand numbers. These companies will also display the Coast logo on their stand fascia boards.
Giving & Living is a smaller more relaxed show than the bigger ones and has a lot of very relevant suppliers for my business. It enables me to see a lot of different ideas and put together a lot of orders in a short space of time. It has a more relaxed atmosphere and you don’t feel overwhelmed by too much choice. It’s also easy to get to and has free all day parking close to the entrance. Anyone new to buying could find the bigger shows a bit daunting. At Exeter the reps are friendly without being pushy, and the staff are all very helpful. ”
