    I think its safe to say that exhibition season is well and truly in full swing.

    With many of us still trying to recapture our breath from INDEX and believing, ever so

    weve been given a stark reminder to think again!Being able to bring together countless relevant

    individuals and organisations under one roof at the same time is the magic behind such events.

    Many of you speak about how great they are to build and enhance relationships and use them as a platform to introduce and launch your various products and talents.

    Amongst the most notable events to capture our attention since Septembers main event include Light Middle East and, where most probably many of you are reading this now, The Big 5 International Building & Construction Show.

    I am sure some of you, upon reading the latter event, are asking how such an exhibition, which is heavily geared towards the construction industry, is relevant for you? Well we have answered exactly that question within our Show Stoppers section so please read on and enjoy the issue which also includes all your familiar favourites and more.

    Impressive displays
