As I walked the halls of the Harrogate International Centre the day before the opening of Northprint 2011, I couldn’t help thinking how it never fails to surprise me how such organised chaos of the final preparations all come together in time to ensure the exhibition looks so perfect when the doors open to the public. And, who would have thought during that final set up day that within just half an hour of those doors opening, the first sale of the day would have been secured. Talking to the exhibitors who made the sale, they too were rather taken aback at the speed of their first order. But it just goes to show, be ready and never underestimate the attention you should give to those first through the door.
