Visitors from several parts of Europe, Spain, Italy, Germany were notable although the odd American accent was heard. Locksmiths from the whole of the UK attended and bought stock, special offers and other bargains. Exhibitors reported that trade had been excellent with record enquiries, sales and new accounts.
