Hall 20, NEC, Birmingham
There is so much to explore and discover when Printwear & Promotion LIVE! 2023 opens its doors on Sunday (February 26).
The exhibition remains the only national event dedicated to the thriving garment and promotional product decoration industry. Vibrant and interactive, the exhibition presents the ideal platform to meet all of the key suppliers from within the industry, to discover new garment decoration equipment and to explore new season printwear styles.
As Nova Chrome UK’s technical manager, Ian McDowell, says: “Printwear & Promotion LIVE! provides one of the longest serving, most widely known platforms for equipment, consumables, networking and knowledge transfer in the UK. The offerings go far beyond the name, with every year delivering something new to see. The benefit here doesn’t need explaining – whatever you’re visiting the show for, you’re bound to find it.”
Equipment receiving their UK debut during the three-day exhibition range from direct to film printers to screen print carousels to multi-head embroidery machines. There will also be some exclusive product launches yet to be announced.
This year, the exhibition welcomes more than 15 new exhibitors who will be displaying a variety of differing products and services, including; bespoke clothing, socks, trophies and engraving, digitising services and direct to film print equipment, and much more!
One of these first-time exhibitors is Cre8iveSkill, a leading creative service providing agency for companies engaged in embroidery and print in the US and Europe. Debashish Ghosh explains why they have decided to exhibit: “Printwear & Promotion LIVE! is our first trade show and we will gain an altogether new experience. Until now we have been meeting clients digitally via emails, but this will be our first one-to-one meeting with our prospective customers. Exhibiting in person means we can express ourselves more clearly and would be able to understand their requirement directly without any communication gap.”
Expert advice and inspiration
Printwear & Promotion LIVE! also offers the ideal platform to learn from a whole host of industry experts. During the three days, our exhibitors will be on hand to answer any technical questions you may have when it comes to using equipment or perfecting your technique.
Visitors can also expand and develop their know how in The Decoration Advice Suite and The Knowledge Centre. Topics covered in The Decoration Advice Suite include; direct to film printing, sustainable embroidery and productivity hacks. While over in The Knowledge Centre, attendees can take away practical business tips, social media advice and marketing pointers.
Doors open on Sunday
Tony Gardner, event director, said: “In a challenging economic climate, it is vital that the show continues to inspire its visitors! With the help of our regular exhibitors, together with the significant number of returning and new exhibitors joining us this year, we are confident that the show will provide the vibrant and dynamic environment to do exactly that.”
All of this presents P&P LIVE! 2023 as an ideal opportunity to see the latest innovative product launches, to meet all of the major suppliers from all corners of the industry and if you’re new to the garment decoration industry to learn more from the industry experts.
Registering online ahead of your visit will save you time on the day, allowing you to make the most of your time at the exhibition.
