DDH’s ‘new look’ field sales team says it is “looking forward to seeing old friends and welcoming new ones”. The company says that the team is ready to demonstrate Drive’s new products and promote its Trade Days show offers, which will run for two days only.

Due to popular demand, the Breakfast Butties are back on Drive’s stand. There will also be a selection of nibbles and drinks available throughout the day. The sales team are currently arranging appointments with customers, so dealers are urged to get in touch.

Classic Canes Stand TB41

Walking stick specialist Classic Canes is launching a new trade catalogue and 40 new products at Trade Days 2018. Among the exclusive new designs from the Somerset-based family firm are new British wildflower designs, available on extending and folding canes. Managing director, Charlotte Gillan, said: “These poppy, cornflower and daisy designs were created for us by a local artist in response to demand form our stockists. Floral patterns are always popular, but it is important that the designs and colours are really special to stand out in the marketplace and give our stockists products that are different to those available through their competitors.”
