Looking back at 2022
A huge thank you to all of the exhibitors and traders and visitors who attended Guildex 2022.
We have learned a great deal about the new venue but all in all it was successful and as many issues as possible were dealt with as soon as possible. All of the venue staff were excellent. The catering team were overwhelmed by the numbers but we will address that. The car parkers and overnight security were extremely good and after an initial hiccup with the courtesy bus that was working well too.

We are very appreciative for all those who filled in feedback forms and if you have comments you wish to share, please do so. That will help us to improve next year.

A special thank you to Steve Robinson, the Show Manager for organising Guildex in a new venue. It is not easy when you have to start with a blank sheet of paper and start liaising with lots of new people and external contractors. 

A huge thank you to all of the events team including the virtual events team and web team for their support so that the live show and videos could be brought to you. We also had a lot of support from other committee members, con reps and local stewards. 

I have no idea what time the logistics team and others who stayed to the bitter end got home but we cannot make shows happen without them.

See you again soon, either face to face or at forthcoming 'Evening With' seminars or, at our virtual show on 5th November.

And now....... we are getting ready for the 2023 Guild Shows.
