BLUE PRINT ONLINE  brings together a fantastic collection of studios and designers. The boutique type feel of the show has created a community spirit, and the fun friendly atmosphere has been maintained even though the number of Exhibitors has grown year by year. By keeping the prices to exhibit at Blue Print low and affordable, and by involving more of the exhibitors in the operation and the marketing of the show, we all have a shared interest in making Blue Print a success.
THE PATTERN CLOUD Since its inception, The Pattern Cloud has grown from a partnership between two studios into the industry standard for digital selling. With more studios joining by the day, their services are also drawing its people closer together. The sharing of knowledge and experience not only allows each studio to be a better business by themselves, but drives the industry as a whole to new, more innovative heights. May it continue to grow.
