You can be a part of the UK’s only national exhibition dedicated to the booming garment decoration industry by heading online and registering to attend next year’s Printwear & Promotion LIVE! 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.
This year’s tagline of EXPLORE · DISCOVER · EXPAND, captures the essence of what the show is all about. These are often buzzwords that we, as organisers, hear from visitors when they describe their own reasons for attending. A survey conducted after the 2022 exhibition revealed that a huge 77% of visitors attended the exhibition to find and source new suppliers, new equipment or new garments, thus exploring and discovering all in the same visit, while around 42% of visitors attended for educational purposes, with a view to expanding their own horizons!
The 2022 exhibition in April took place against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic and despite this support from exhibitors was fantastic. Although visitor numbers were lower than usual, the 4,500 who attended came along with real intent and purpose! Moving back to February, which is generally a quieter time in the garment decorator’s busy calendar, will be better suited to enable many more to attend.
The 2023 show aims to deliver more of what you have come to expect from the annual exhibition. Expect to see familiar names such as Amaya Sales UK, Ralawise, Xpres and Stanley/Stella all ready to showcase their new and exciting products to you. New names already signed up to exhibit for the first time include; BeSmart Pro, a manufacturer of custom-made clothing, and Transworld Trophies, a supplier of trophies and awards.
Direct to film printing was definitely the main attraction at P&P LIVE! 2022, with more than 15 exhibitors showcasing this up-and-coming method on their stands. This emerging technology was in its infancy at the exhibition in April, and a year on we expect more advancements in this market sector to be on display. News of what’s in the pipeline is currently under wraps, but we anticipate many exciting launches to be discovered when P&P LIVE! 2023 opens its doors in February.
At the time of writing there are over 100 stands on the floor plan, with our exhibitors gearing up to help you develop and grow your business in 2023.
You can also expect to find a whole new line-up of speakers in the show’s two Seminar Suites; The Decoration Advice Suite and The Knowledge Centre. Topics covered will include everything from social media advice to tips on transfer printing. The timetables will be released towards the end of the year.
The exciting Video Wall also makes a return for 2023. Situated opposite a coffee area, visitors can take the load off their feet for a while and watch the latest promotional videos from key suppliers from across the industry.
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.
You will find all of the latest news on the exhibition on the show’s dedicated website, as well as on social media. Join in the conversation using the hashtag #pandplive2023.
