The biennial forestry, woodland, trees and timber show featured 315 exhibitors, 15 per cent up on 2014, and drew over 22,000 visitors, up 25 per cent.
Exhibition secretary Ian Millward said: "The APF Team are delighted with the success of the show. We have had very positive feedback from exhibitors and visitors alike. Many exhibitors reported doing record business and some of our first time smaller exhibitors were amazed at the business they did. Many have already requested about booking for next time."
Millward confirmed that the next APF show in two years' time will take place on the same site on 20-22 September 2018. All 2016 exhibitors will be offered first refusal on the same site.
