Open Day


Welcome to the Open Day post-event website. This year’s Day was ambitious. And judging by the feedback, the best we’ve put on. We love that - it means we really hit the mark. Because it really is your Day, not ours.

This site’s all about what went on. It’s full of galleries, videos and downloads recording pretty much everything that happened. If you were there remind yourself what you saw and see what you didn’t. Go-ahead and download images and workshop presentations.

If you didn’t or couldn’t come you’re welcome to browse. Please, take a look. Get a feel for what our Day’s like. You’ll find it’s unlike any other Trade Show you've been to.  Don’t believe me? If you haven't already take a look at the video above. That's what our Day's all about. And if you have and still doubt me, come see me on the day and I'll make sure you love it.

Paul Cubbage at the Target Open Day 2016Our challenge is to make 2017 better. To continue the run we’ve had since we started Open Days in 2008. Hard act to follow? Well, it sure doesn’t get any easier. But that's not going to stop us trying.

We’ve already started planning next year and I'd like ask you a favour. The Open Day was, is and will always be your Day. So we need to know what you think: what you liked, what could be better, suggestions, anything – whether you came along or didn’t - please, please let us know. We’d love to hear from you – just email us at

Here’s to 2017!
