5 Mar 2018 Edition Benny Soehave Soerensen Reviewed on 02 Apr 2018 Author / Illustrator at Self-employed
It was a giant fair with a cornucopia of different relevant people and company's for a debut author such as myself. I hope that just one of the many promising contacts I managed to establish will be able to publish my work abroad.

5 Mar 2018 Edition Sean Mullen Reviewed on 02 Apr 2018 Publisher at Gold Quill Publishing
I was happy about the event but not the location of my stand. I was not given any choice and was not offered the same location as last year which was better.

5 Mar 2018 Edition Doreen Thorogood Reviewed on 30 Mar 2018 Agent at Good Illustration Limited
Beautifully laid out stands and outstanding work to see. Had lots of great meetings with publishers and did good business.

5 Apr 2017 Edition Doreen Thorogood Reviewed on 07 Apr 2017 Agent at Good Illustration Limited
I had a very productive time and had 19 meetings in two days. It was lovely to catch up with my clients from all over the world and to see my artists books displayed on many stands. One thing could be improved and that is the Ladies toilets.
