Potential exhibitors at the Spatex 2014 trade show attended an open day on 20 March at the event’s new venue, the Ricoh Arena, to see the facilities for themselves.


The tour included the purpose-built Jaguar ExhibitionHall, the dining room for the SPATA and BISHTA Awards Gala dinner (overlooking the stadium) and the on-site casino.  Free wi-fi and refreshments in the exhibitors’ lounge are some of the new features promised for Spatex 2014.
