It’s that time of year when our thoughts turn to events and exactly what we need to do to enable us to showcase our dynamic cushions, mattresses and new innovations in the world of pressure care. Planning is essential, with hotels to be booked, new shell schemes and pop-up counters to design and order, promotional items to think about….the list goes on!
