With autumn well and truly set in and Christmas just around the corner, this can only mean one thing: Trophex! The UK’s only trophy, awards, engraving and personalisation show is set to be another impressive exhibition. With an endless display of striking trophies for the season ahead, stunning glass and pewterware, eye-catching medals, the very latest engraving machines to hit the market with hands-on demonstrations and the newest sublimation technology available, there really is something for everyone.

One regular and loyal exhibitor to Trophex is Glenway Products Ltd. Tim Wilford, Sales Director at the company said: “Over a year Glenway, as a company, partake in many exhibitions and road shows, but Trophex is still by far the biggest and best attended one. The show is entirely directed at our potential end user; the trophy retailer, in their now many forms. For Trophex 2016 Glenway will be in the same position that we’ve occupied since 2001: just to the left hand side as you walk through the door of the NEC Pavilion on the third weekend of January. I think one of the reasons that Trophex has bucked the trend of falling exhibition attendances over the last few years, is the fact that its time, date and location have stayed rigid over the last 15 years. It is also an ideal time for trophy retailers to kick start their new year with the chance to see new ideas and designs.”

The Open Forum Seminars return to the 2016 show. A number of seminars will take place over the two days which will offer visitors technical information and advice on different subject matters in the industry. New speakers recently added include:

Peter Kettle, Business Development Manager at Roland DG (UK) Ltd will be running a seminar on 3D printing; here you can learn more about the myths, reality and the future of this.

Billy Willis, Senior Sales Manager at Rayzist will discuss learning the business of sandcarving from the beginning. He will cover the process of photoresist films, sandcarving glass, crystal, curve surfaces and more.

And learn more from Gravograph as they share their best engraving and lasering tips and advice as well as presenting the new Gravostyle8 engraving software.

These are just some of the motivating seminars which will be taking place over the course of the exhibition with more to be added. Visit the website at www.trophex.com to find out more about the show and to register. Trophex is free to attend and there is no charge for car parking.
