About 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 professional distributor companies from across the UK & Ireland. Please click here to view the Merchandise World Visitor Policy.

Our visitors can choose to see the latest and hottest products from the industry’s top suppliers in a traditional exhibition format, or hold business review meetings 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.

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 professional distributors will be attending the event.

Merchandise World is held twice a year in the key seasons: January (The New Year) and September (The Peak Season), 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. Professional distributors are invited whether members or not.
