Why exhibit with us ..
Our answer is simply because we care deeply about not just our visitor experience but also our exhibitor experience which creates a wonderful shopping atmosphere. As such since creating CLF in 2015 we continue to build year on year our following of regular visitors who have all come to expect a rather special day out of shopping all under one roof.
Our reputation has been built on offering our visitors a fabulous collection of high end, quality and/or unique products accompanied by good old fashioned friendly customer service. Our exhibitors are incredible and create a wonderful atmosphere with their positive attitude (no one sits down at our fairs they're too busy engaging with our visitors not their phones!)
Our ethos is to attract quality over quantity not just in our visitors but also our exhibitors as with just 50-70 hand picked exhibitors attending (number dependent on the time of year), carefully chosen to limit product repetition and offering high quality, unique pieces in fashion, jewellery, beauty, accessories, homeware, gifts, gadgets, crafts, artisan makers, designers, food & drink etc. which offers great value for money per visitor spend on pitch rental return with over 1400 visitors at our last fair in 2018.
We have had hundreds of small to medium-size enterprises using our fairs as a venue for marketing, promotions, sales and many have been with us from the start and have been rewarded by seeing their following grow year on year. Many new entrepreneurs have also used the fairs as a low cost risk option for starting new businesses and seen their business boom.
This year we are concentrating on our fabulous East Sussex venue with two fairs planned. This will be our third year at this venue and continues to build footfall year on year from our extensive marketing campaign prior to our fairs through magazine advertising, roadside banners, posters, flyers, visitor email list of approximately 2000, competitions, internet listings, social media and various other media.
