Caroline McCusker, Event Manager of IFEX comments: "IFEX has long been recognised as being a national platform for thousands of fantastic products, from the bigger well-known companies and also from small independent producers, who are creating innovative and niche goods to meet with rising customer expectations.
“IFEX Product of the Show is a great platform to highlight and reward the hard work behind these products. The standard of entries that we received this year was phenomenal and this year’s shortlist is filled with some very deserving finalists - it will be a challenge for our independent panel of judges to settle on a winner.”
