Looks like an interesting event for anyone engaged in making 'stuff'. Along with retailers such as Tandy Leather there will be some notable Youtube 'stars' such as Jimmy DiResta, well known for his videos featuring, among other things, axe/knife sword bulids. Looking at the stand layout there are spaces available, maybe an opportunity for a UK knife maker?
Entry seems a bit pricey at £20 a day pre-booked (£25 on the day) . Disclaimer: I've no connection or interests in the NEC or Maker Central.
