Welcome to the


Welcome to our first KBzine of the new decade. So much has happened since our last broadcast... the world seems to be on something of a precipice, doesn't it, what with the frightening escalation of tensions affecting the Middle East (and potentially beyond), unusually severe weather conditions in many parts of the world and the Brexit agenda - under pressure to be finalised by the end of this month and the scaremongering still ongoing about its impact on the various parts of our continent’s ability to trade and even, in some cases, to remain friends. Naturally, the world's prayers have been focused on Australia and its need for rain. What a catastrophe to have to deal with and please may it never happen on this scale again!

Most people (or we’re supposed to, anyway) look forward to Christmas and the New Year as a time of celebration and – importantly – as it offers for many a few days away from the workplace. Every other year though, I tend to get excited about what’s coming after Christmas… Yes – the KBB Birmingham show, which is, as I write, just eight weeks away.

My inbox is already filling with a taster of what we’ll be able to see at this year’s event and I have to say it’s all looking very exciting. There are more than 400 exhibitors and we’re promised collection debuts from many brands and of course the all-important networking opportunities that such a dynamic hub of activity brings.

I’m on the edge of my seat!

The show runs across 1st – 4th March. You can register to attend at:
