To identify the top 100, the shows trend interpreters Scarlet Opus have scoured exhibitors’ product portfolios. The resulting top 100 will form the 2019 trend displays and include products from 37 exhibitors. Scarlet Opus were spoilt for choice, but they whittled it down to feature their elite 100.
Phil Pond from Scarlet Opus adds “The Trend feature has been a part of the Exclusively Shows for 4 years now and this year, it seemed as if everything had come together. The exhibitors have all clearly worked hard and innovatively during the past year to create a stunning array of products. If in the early years it wasn’t so easy to identify product for a ‘Trend Showcase’ 2019 has swept away any such memory. It was hard selecting products for the showcase simply because there was so much great product to select from”.
