Lockexpo 2022 photo review

* Lockexpo2022-2.jpgIt was never going to be easy to start almost from scratch again, but disappointed exhibitors from 2020 rebooked and chose their spots, while there were a couple who decided Covid was still a risk, overall the showing was good.

Unfortunately, the global pandemic caused the organisers to postpone not only the 2020 but the 2021 show as well, but we are happy to announce 3D Group will be exhibiting at this long-established expo over the weekend of the 5th & 6th of March 2022. So you'll be able to catch us Saturday and Sunday
