There is still time to register for this year’s Schoolwear Show, which will showcase all the latest developments in the schoolwear market.
The show, which takes place at Associated Independent Stores at Cranmore Park in Solihull, from 9-11 October, had a new layout last year, and the organisers (which include Blue Max Banner, David Luke, Gymphlex, Rowlinson Knitwear and William Turner) promise even more changes this year to further enhance the atmosphere of the event.
As well as the organisers, other exhibitors include Balmoral, TheMagicTouch, Result, PenCarrie and Amaya.
“The Schoolwear Show is the exhibition for anyone involved in supplying schools with embroidered, printed or generic product,” comments Nigel Plenderleith, one of The Schoolwear Show’s directors. “It is an opportunity to see what is in the market and what products and developments are new for 2017. It covers daywear and sportswear together with other related products. It is a great networking opportunity and the seminars are a very informative forum to gain an interesting insight on how to tackle specific aspects of the industry.”
Visitors can register online to attend the show at www.theschoolwearshow.co.uk – there will be a £10 charge per person for those who don’t register beforehand.
The organisers suggest booking a time to see exhibitors if you have a particular issue you’d like to discuss (for a full list of exhibitors, visit the website), and also remind visitors that lunch will be provided for them free of charge thanks to the show’s exhibitors. Sunday and Monday are always the busiest days of the show, so if you have a number of exhibitors you want to meet for an in-depth chat it may be worth attending on the Tuesday.
The show’s opening hours are Sunday 9th October 9.30am to 5.00pm, Monday 10th October 9.30am to 5.00pm and Tuesday 11th October 9.30am to 4.00pm.
