UK – The second edition of Sourcing City Live! will not take place on January 15 and 16, 2014, as originally scheduled. Instead, the organiser Sourcing City has announced that they are moving the show dates to March 5 and 6, 2014.
CEO Alistair Mylchreest explains; “Experience tells you a lot of things, and we have decided that January is not when we want to do our show. We feel it is asking too much for some suppliers to do three shows in three weeks. We also have another good reason. As snow now seems to be becoming more regular in January, we do not want to risk losing any future events to the weather. The new dates also have the important benefits of more samples, far east prices and supplier catalogues being available.”
