Juls Dawson, managing director of JATC Events, commented: “We are so pleased with the reaction to our new venue, not only from an aesthetic and fit-for-purpose perspective but also because of how accessible it is. It’s so pleasing as a team when it all fits into place and goes so well for everyone. We thrive off positive feedback from buyers and brands – it makes it all worthwhile.”
Juls added: “Our lifestyle and beauty zone saw growth with 90% of the exhibitors new to JATC, showcasing a mix of brands covering beauty, jewellery, skincare and wearable accessories.

“The inaugural Pow Wow Session held on the Monday on [the theme of] Responsibility was hosted by industry stalwarts Kathy O’Driscoll and Simon Platts, and was followed by a drop-in session on the Tuesday in our Responsible zone. This opened up important conversations among exhibitors and buyers, encouraging many to learn something new on a subject so critical to the future of our industry.”

Just Around the Corner AW24 will be held from February 11 to February 13 2024.
