Summer sourcing

As bridal retailers across the country gear up for the busy wedding season, we offer an advance look at some of the key autumn trade events including The Harrogate Bridal Show, International Jewellery London, Moda and The Bridal Roadshow in Bristol. Exhibitions such as these are a great source of inspiration and offer a fresh perspective on the market, helping you to stay informed, current and one step ahead of the game for your customers.

In this issue we also have a wealth of advice from our experts including new columnist Eleanor Lester, owner of Shrewd PR. In her rst article she tackles the distinction between PR, marketing and advertising and explains how to use each in order to further your business.
