At last count, with stands filling up fast, there were 38 first time exhibitors at The Source in February 2015, alongside around 110 of our regular exhibitors! We all like to see new things and with everything from beer to bread, cereals to coffee beans, and marmalade to meringues, not to mention spirits, wine and truffles, you’ll be spoilt for choice!
