Over 100 members and suppliers attended the Ignite exhibition at Warwick racecourse on Thursday October 5th, creating record turnout numbers once again. Richard Pettinger from Ignite said: “It was so rewarding so see another fantastic turn out from our distributor members at Warwick on Thursday. It is always a great day of mixing business and pleasure in most convivial surroundings. We are indebted to our superb suppliers who always turn out in force and with such large distributor numbers in attendance, they were kept very busy all morning. The afternoon was completed with a lovely lunch watching the racing. The party continued into town well after dark. Thank you all for your support, it is greatly appreciated.”

Warwick Testimonials 2017
“The Wild Thang team had a fantastic day at Warwick racecourse for our inaugural ignite catalogue launch. It was a great opportunity to meet the supplier exhibitors who were there in force showcasing an array of new and innovative products. Win or lose on the horseracing Richard’s hospitality was first class and we are now very excited about building a long term mutually beneficial relationship with this well-established group, promoting the best possible standards and supporting the Promotional Merchandise Industry sector – Andrew Dwerryhouse – Managing Director, Wild Thang
Hi Richard, I would just like to say a huge thank you for the Ignite Catalogue launch event in Warwick on Thursday. I bought along our whole team from here as we have 2 new girls and the suppliers were most helpful and supportive, offering advice on branding, product selection and many other things along the way. We all benefited hugely and it was a day very well spent out of the office. Sometimes we all lose sight of the importance of education and relationship building. The members are all so helpful it’s good to catch up in the bar and say a thank you to those that have helped us along the way with product and supplier details. All in all we had a fantastic day and the relaxed networking in the afternoon was brilliant, winning on a few races was just the icing on the cake! Thank you so much and we are already talking about next year’s event with excitement! – Judith Tinker – Director, M4 Promotions
