North Tourism Fair, Hexham
The North Tourism Fair, Hexham, is again being held at the Hexham Mart on Thursday 15th March 2018.
The event at Hexham Mart incorporates the annual Meet the Maker event in Northumberland. Supported by Northumberland County Council Meet the Maker links buyers with some of the county's best producers and artists.
Meet the Maker co-odinator, Dawn Goodwill-Evans. “It’s an ideal opportunity to link art, craft, music, food & drink suppliers – all with a great local story to tell – with commercial buyers, accommodation providers and other visitor attractions. By combining the the Tourism Fair and Meet the Market event on the same day we are able to attract well in excess of 100 exhibitors and an opportunity for some invaluable interactions at the start of the 2017 tourism season."
The venue is open to exhibitors for set-up from 9:00 am, and the event is open to visitors between 10:00am and 2:30pm.
The Hexham Tourism Fair is being delivered in partnership with the Hexham Community Partnership and the Heart of Northumberland Tourism Association. Northumberland County Council is supporting the event through a block booking of exhibition space, and Northumberland Tourism has also pledged its support to help us publicise the event.
Meals and refreshments are available throughout the day in the Hexham Mart cafe.
Ample free parking is available at the Hexham Mart.
Exhibitor feedback has confirmed that the North Tourism Fairs are an excellent
opportunity to network with the other exhibitors who either manage attractions in the region or provide support services to the tourism industry. More than 130 exhibitors attended the Alnwick & Hexham events in 2017.
Places will be allocated on a "first come, first served" basis.
You are strongly advised to register promptly to avoid disappointment.
