NETS has learned  the group of suppliers called:  TAG CENTRAL,  will NOT be hosting a winter/spring show at all in 2018.  They did indicate they would likely  hold a show in late summer of 2018.

Organizers from TAG CENTRAL indicated that retailers said that a late winter/ early spring 2018 show was not wanted.

One of the many shows across Canada coming soon is : the Toronto Gift Show at the International Centre & Congress Centre  Airport Road  Mississauga  Jan.29 РFeb. 1 , 2018.

Do you plan to attend the Toronto Gift Show?

If yes and you would like to see NETS members come together sometime during the show-please contact me by email at:  or
