Under the banner of “Bring it back to live!”, The Big Promotional Trade Show exhibitions showcase many of the industry’s leading companies, exclusively aimed at distributors where promotional merchandise, including promotional clothing, is the primary business.
Each event will feature 60 of the top suppliers of promotional merchandise and services from the UK and Ireland.
The autumn 2021 events will be badged The Big New Products Trade Show, majoring on the thousands of new products and ranges launched into the industry for this key selling period and during lockdown as a whole.
The Big Promotional Trade Show events, which are organised on a not-for-profit basis, will continue to be programmed for late 2022 and into 2023. More dates will be announced in due course.
The schedule was revealed after Prime Minister Boris Johnson signalled that Covid restrictions are set to end on 19 July in England, with hopes that other parts of the UK and Ireland will soon follow.
In a statement, the organisers said: “We are delighted to confirm our strong and revitalised programme of exhibitions and roadshows for autumn 2021 and spring 2022 that will enable exhibitors and visitors to re-engage and reconnect face to face.”
