It’s official the Festival of Quilts is now an award winning show!

Last week we attended the Exhibition News Awards – which celebrates excellence in the live events industry and scooped the prize for Best Consumer Show.

The Best Consumer Show category recognises an event that has delivered a superb visitor experience, driven by creative marketing initiatives, year-on-year success, a competitive edge, originality and commercial growth. Other contenders included The New Scientist Show and The Ski and Snowboard Show.

We are absolutely thrilled that the show has been presented with this coveted award and can not wait to make this year’s show even better.
