SHOWCASE Ireland 2022 has just opened doors to a live fair with a move from the traditional three-day event in January to 27 February-2 March.

While last year’s online event was one of the most successful of its kind, the move was made after consultation with retailers and exhibitors, who marked a strong preference for a live fair. A statement released by Showcase Ireland Chair Mary Palmer has indicated that there is confidence that the latest wave of the pandemic will have passed in tandem with booster vaccine rollouts.

“In making this decision we have consulted extensively with retailers and exhibitors, said Mary Palmer. “We believe that by this new date confident face-to-face interaction will have returned following the effective distribution of booster vaccines and the passing of the latest wave of Covid-19. We want to assure you that we will deliver a safe and comfortable environment for retailers and makers to come together, leading we hope to positive outcomes for all.”
