Gadget Show Live took place across six halls at the NEC last week (April 2-7, 2013). 241 companies exhibited over the six days – one trade and five public. VIP packages and Saturday and Sunday tickets sold out in advance.

“Our fifth Gadget Show Live has been a fantastic success for both exhibitors and visitors,” commented Sally Bent, event manager. “We’re thrilled with visitor figures, which were exactly on target following our decision to limit daily numbers to improve visitors’ experience and overall enjoyment of the show.  The best news is that this had no impact on retailing, which remained high for our exhibitors.”
