1. Meet your fans and gain new ones

Our first event in 2017 saw over 13,000 visitors across the weekend, which was incredible! This year, we’ve planned an even better event, we’ve got a new location, further improvements and more parking too!

TOTS gives you the chance to meet and connect with the locals of Dorset and visitors from across the South! You will meet new customers and strengthen your bond with existing customers. Let your contacts know that you will be attending TOTS via your social media, your newsletters and website – this will maximize your exposure and push interest to your brand.

  1. Trade and work with the best

We are bringing the best of the South – our array of exhibitors includes food and drink, skin care products, painted ceramics, leather goods and award-winning culinary experts will be on hand over the event. Meeting new people, both your consumers and your fellow exhibitors offers so much and working alongside other exhibitors allows you to learn from them and their skills. It enables you keep up to date with industry trends and customer interests and it’s a great opportunity for YOU and YOUR business to build a network with other likeminded people and businesses that could potentially help you and your business expand and develop! It also opens the door to other opportunities.
