Merchandise World saw 1599 of the promotional merchandise industry’s top distributors attend the UK’s leading and biggest promotional merchandise trade exhibition on Wednesday 12th and Thursday 13th February 2019 at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry.

Almost every major UK distributor company was there, alongside many other significant and professional distributors. The hall itself was buzzing and vibrant as the exhibitors created an excellent array of colourful and innovated stands to present their eco, new and top selling products.


As with all Merchandise World events, the exhibitors were overflowing with compliments on the quality and quantity of the professional visitors. As one said with a satisfying smile; “Merchandise World is a brilliant place to do business!”


As always, the free breakfast, lunch and pick n’mix proved a great success!


Next stop, Milton Keynes!

About Merchandise World


Merchandise World is now clearly established as the UK’s leading and biggest promotional merchandise trade exhibition and the place for the industry to come together in January/February and September each year. This industry leading event is a unique concept which combines a traditional exhibition, a networking event and optional appointment booking for specific meeting times.


All sales & administration teams, management and directors from professional distributor companies from across the UK & Ireland are invited. Our invited visitors can choose to informally see the latest and best-selling products from the industry’s top suppliers in a traditional exhibition format or hold business review or planning meetings by appointment with exhibitors. There is no limit on to the number of company personnel able to attend from any invited distributor company, and they do not have to be members of BPMA, Purple Club or Sourcing City.


The entire UK & Ireland promotional merchandise market spend is in excess of £1Billion and Merchandise World has tremendous support from the industry with around 1,600 top quality professional distributor buyers having attended individual events.


We look forward to you coming to the next Merchandise World which is the perfect time for professional distributors to find new suppliers, reinforce relationships with existing suppliers, to see new products, to be reminded of top sellers, to discuss trading plans and to discover new opportunities.


Merchandise world is jointly owned by the British Promotional Merchandise Association (BPMA) and Sourcing City.
