The New Year is a key time when top distributors want to see new products, and be reminded of top sellers (alongside the Peak Selling Season in September).

The second Merchandise World will take place on Wednesday 31st January & Thursday 1st February 2018 at The Wing, Silverstone Circuit, NN12 8TN. To date; 74% of the floor space has been sold and more bookings are being taken daily.

Merchandise World has tremendous support from the industry’s distributors and the expectation is that the event will be highly attended by key industry companies.

If you have booked to be at Merchandise World in the New Year we are excited to see you there; if you’ve not yet booked it is not too late, but it might be if you do not decide soon! Silverstone has limited space remaining, and this event will be a sell out! 


What is Merchandise World? 

Merchandise World is a unique concept which combines a traditional exhibition, a networking event and optional appointments. The event is for all sales & administration teams, management and directors from invited professional distributor companies from across the UK & Ireland.

Our visitors can choose to see the latest and hottest products from the industry’s top suppliers in a traditional exhibition format, or by appointment in a Conversation Area on an exhibition stand, or on a Conversation Pod. There is no limit on the number of company personnel able to attend from any invited distributor company.

Over 1700 Professional Distributor Companies with approaching 4500 Visitors are invited to Merchandise World, from which over 650 Companies with 2500+ Team Members would be admitted free. The other professional distributors are also able to attend by paid (and potentially refundable) entrance. The Merchandise World Visitor Policy can be viewed at:

The entire UK promotional merchandise market spend is in excess of £950m. Merchandise World has tremendous support from the industry’s professional distributors and the expectation is that the majority of the industry’s top distributors will be attending the event.

Merchandise World is held twice a year in the key seasons: September (The Peak Season) and January (The New Year), which are the perfect times for professional distributors to see new products and to be reminded of top sellers.

Merchandise World is jointly owned by the BPMA and Sourcing City following the merger of The BPMA Show and Sourcing City Marketplace in 2017.
