Merchandise World, the UK’s biggest promotional merchandise trade exhibition attracted around 1400 top quality professional distributor buyers to the NAEC in Stoneleigh in January this year – and that was in spite of all the travel problems caused by the snow!

We are expecting even more quality visitors at the two new venues for our next shows – and if you want to grow your business, this will be the place to meet new customers and reinforce relationships with existing clients.

The stand space at the Merchandise World Show at Stoneleigh in January sold out and we had a waiting list who we could not fit in. Many exhibitors booked whilst at the last show, so if you want to come next time, please be quick as it may be risky waiting to book!

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 February and September each year. This industry leading event is a unique concept which combines a traditional exhibition, a networking event and optional appointments.

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 hottest 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 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 1400 top quality professional distributor buyers having attended previous 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.
