LONDON — London’s trade show organizers are upbeat despite the cloudy economic climate, and exhibitors are making creative efforts to adapt to difficult conditions.
“In terms of trading conditions, I think that the last summer season was one of the toughest yet for the U.K., and those that have survived it, both brands and retailers, will be all the stronger for it,” said Lindsay Hoyes, event director at Bubble London, which focuses on children’s wear.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
