Visitors / Distributors

1. The 2021 dates are October 26th – October 29th.

2. Due to Covid the 2021 brochure will be digital only – available on-line early October.

3. As usual the show will operate on a “by appointment only” basis and there are no rigid opening and closing times. Distributors and exhibitors are free to schedule meetings at any mutually convenient time – exhibitors will have permanent access to their showrooms.

4. As a general guide all showrooms will be open for business from 09.00 hrs until 18.00 hrs each day.

5.We urge all visitors to take full advantage of the four day duration of the show and use at least the Friday morning. Some exhibitors who are fully set up over the weekend may well be in a position to schedule some appointments during Monday October 25th – please consult with the exhibitors as you organise your schedule. As always all registered exhibitors appear in an alphabetical list in the Exhibitors page ( see “Visitors Click Here” button). This will be updated on a day-to-day basis as registrations are confirmed.

6. Both hotels ( St James’ Court and St. Ermin’s ) ) have agreed to hold the 2020 prices. Special Distoy rates for bedroom accommodation and reservations may be made immediately. Contact details for the hotels can be found on the Venues page and can be contacted direct but Distoy offers a hotel reservation service and would be pleased to process your enquiries – just send an email to Madeleine Potter ( and provide her with arrival and departure dates & credit card details against which your booking can be guaranteed.
