British Industries Fair — New Zealand's Representation
British Industries Fair
New Zealand's Representation.
New Zealand is again taking space at the British Industries Fair which is being held from February 21 to March 4 in London and Birmingham next year. She will be represented in the Empire section in the great new building at Earls Court.
Textiles, furniture, foodstuffs and the products of the British Empire are to be shown at Earls Court, with its two floors, where there is room for 40,000 people to move along the gangways with ease.
Among the exhibits at Olympia will be jewellery, pottery and glassware, toys and games, fancy goods, scientific instruments, leather goods, stationery and printing, chemicals and sports goods, and a number of the “Iighter” trades of the United Kingdom.
At Castle Bromwich, Birmingham, engineering and metal manufactures will be displayed in what is believed to be the world's largest permanent exhibition building, which has a gross area of 694,000 square feet and an actual exhibiting area of 305,000 square feet.
By the beginning of July more than seven-eighths of the space occupied this year in the Fair as a whole had already been booked for 1938.
