Help and advice on possible careers for school leavers in post-war Britain was available in the Matlocks. In addition, training courses were set up to ensure the disabled could retain and secure employment. The exhibition in the Grand Pavilion, which ran from 15th - 19th October, 1946 was designed to bring potential employers under one roof. It was organised by Harry Douglas and John Bertram Aubrey Marsden-Smedley. The former was the manager of Smedley's Hydro and this was his own programme. The event was opened by The Marquess of Hartington.
