Can anyone visit Home & Gift?
Home & Gift is a trade only show, which means that you need to be able to prove you are a part of the retail trade. Exhibitors have a 'minimum order' policy and will not sell to members of the public. If you are in the process of setting up your own retail business, or are a student within the retail industry then you are more than welcome to attend.
Do I need to provide proof of trade?
Yes. Spot checks for proof of trade will be in operation. You should have proof of trade on you which can include a business card or a company cheque book. If you are found buying for personal use, you will be asked to leave the exhibition.
