Lesley Inman, Edel Telenzo UK operations manager says: “Once again we’re pleased to say we had a very good Harrogate. We are truly grateful to all our customers – old and new – who took the time to come to the show and to visit our stand. Overall it seemed as though footfall was down – it’s just a shame the retailers don’t support the event and the exhibitors more.
“Response to some of the new ranges in the pipeline has been very encouraging – it would seem retailers enjoy the opportunity to have some input into what actually ends up going into production. Our new Tube Collection stripe, Hammersmith, with its bold wide multi-stripe pattern, was very well received, along with new colours (in the grey scale) for the existing Tube Collection ranges, Piccadilly, Bakerloo, Mainline and Centrepoint. Our new contract quality stripey 100% Edelon polypropylene, Rio de Janeiro, was also very well received. New collections in production – the 50-50 Highbury, Islington, Hampton Court and our velvety textured 100% polyamide, Casablanca – also continue to receive a chorus of approval.
Congratulations to James Browne, of Rodgers of York, winner of our prize draw to win an iPad.
