These events are trade only and are designed to cater only for bona fide distributor companies where promotional merchandise is the primary business; a strict door policy will be in place.

The BIG Promotional Trade Show events are organised on a not-for-profit basis, by the trade, for the trade.


Neal Beagles, managing director of Roantree said: “A very useful visit. The industry needed a mid-season and regional event and these shows fill that brief. The show today was an ideal opportunity for us to bring along existing staff and also to introduce our new starters to the industry. A very good day indeed.”

Karl Pearsall from Original Thing commented: “I completely underestimated the extent of the show, the number of big hitters from the industry exhibiting surprised me, so my intended short visit turned into an extended and educational day!”

Exhibitor Simon Adam, managing director of WCM&A, added: “We are delighted with both the quality and quantity of visitors today and have been particularly pleased with the large number of company who have taken the opportunity to send multiple numbers of staff. Everyone who stopped off at our display was interested and took the time to acquaint themselves with our company and product range.”
