Yesterday was simply a super first day and it is so pleasing as a team when it all fits into place and goes so well for everyone. We thrive off positive feedback from buyers and brands and it makes it all worthwhile. Our lifestyle and beauty zone saw growth with 90% of the exhibitors new to JATC, showcasing a mix of brands covering beauty, jewellery, skincare and wearable accessories. The inaugural Pow Wow Session held on the Monday on Responsibility hosted by industry stalwarts Kathy O'Driscoll and Simon Platts followed by a drop-in session on the Tuesday in our responsible zone, opened up important conversations amongst exhibitors and buyers encouraging many to learn something new on a subject so critical to the future of our industry"
