UK: Positive atmosphere at Four Oaks Trade Show

The Four Oaks Trade Show in Cheshire is on its second and last day, and despite the heat, the atmosphere is positive.

"We had to wait and see whether the heat would affect the number of visitors. But it seems not as it is busy. And for us, the fair is already a success, as both sweepers have already been sold to local growers within a morning", the men of Steenks say. They are one of the 300+ exhibitors and are presenting, among others, their Ground cover floor sweeper, Stefix 135.

And as at many trade shows, also awards have been handed out. Below are some of the winners, who proudly posted it on social media:
