19 December 2006 — Birmingham (UK): Record numbers of people attended this month’s SOS conference held in the NEC Pavillion.
David Coghill, Spicers’ SOS event manager said: "Last year’s show was good but this year’s exceeded all expectations; from the number and quality of exhibitors through to pre-registration and actual visitor numbers who attended the two-day event."
Glasgows, events and exhibition organisers, sponsored a special award at the conference for the exhibitor who made the most of promoting themselves at SOS. This year’s award of a luxury Christmas hamper was awarded to Smead.
The SOS Christmas party raised £1,260 ($2,471) for the BOSS Benevolent Fund.
