The CFA AGM/CONFERENCE 2022 is a must attend event. It is a very useful day for all CFA member fair organisers for the following reasons:
*NEW STALLHOLDERS GALLERY
This gives you as a fair organiser the opportunity to meet new stallholders (ie a member who has joined since the 2020 conference) They set up their stands and you can meet them and see their products for real and see if they are suitable for a place at your fair. This year you can also buy their products (10% of your spend goes to the CFA Fund)
*EXISITING STALLHOLDERS GALLERY
This gives you as a fair organiser the opportunity to meet existing stallholders. Due to speed presentations not being Covid friendly we are setting up the Existing Stallholders Gallery. Each stallholder will have at least a ½ table to display their key products and have videos running about their business. They will be available to talk to and this year you can also buy their products! (10% of your spend goes to the CFA Fund)
PLEASE NOTE: All stallholders in the Galleries will be set up all day so you can leisurely make your choices of which stallholders you would like at your fair.
*To listen to relevant presentations
*Network and swop ideas and opinions
* For fair organisers and stallholders to meet in the casual setting of conference
* TO COLLECT THE HARD COPY STALLHOLDERS DIRECTORY FOR 2022
