Midas 12 Displays Of Christmas

  Published: 05/01/2021

12 days of Christmas? How about the 12 DISPLAYS of Christmas!?
This Christmas, the Midas team selected 12 displays from our comprehensive range and have promoted one for each of the 12 days of Christmas. A variety of products have been selected, which demonstrates the wide range of capabilities that Midas Displays have to offer.
