From the 28th-30th April Blackwood will be at the NEC in Birmingham attending Naidex, Europe’s largest independent living exhibition. We’ve had a busy time contacting companies to see what they’ll be showcasing and what new things we can show our members. With this in mind we thought it’d be good to show you all some of the organisations who will be there and find out what it is you would like to know about the exhibitors.
