Success, succession and the Northpoint Show

“After the very succesful show last September – the first since January 2019 – we are pleased to announce that the show will return to the Royal Highland Centre in Edinburgh this year, on our favoured dates in early April (3rd-5th),” says Bob Dymond, the organiser of Scotland’s Northpoint Show for the past 20 years.

Following the 2022 edition, Bob will hand the reins of management to industry veteran Gavin Douglas, who brings many years of experience to the role, including a wealth of knowledge of organising exhibitions throughout the UK in his former capacity as Morris Furniture Group’s marketing manager, among other roles.

“I would like to thank the many exhibitors that have supported the show down the years, and I know the future of the Northpoint Show is in good hands with Gavin from 2023 onwards,” says Bob.

Last year’s event garnered popular responses from visitors and exhibitors, including Kettle Interiors’ Mike Marshall, who comments: “Kettle knows the importance of exhibiting their product to retailers, and were rewarded by our presence at the Northpoint Show last September.”

Roseanne Campbell, Vale Bridgecraft’s northern UK sales manager, says: “Last year saw us attend the show for the first time. Due to the very positive response from buyers, we will be going again in April.”
