With the promise of 100 stands, some exciting new printwear brands, a host of first time exhibitors, the latest machinery and a strong focus on teamwear, ahead of the London Olympics, Printwear & Promotion Live 2012 is going to be a cracking show! The show takes place at the NEC, Birmingham, from February 26th to 28th.
The show’s sales manager, Tony Gardner says: “We will be covering all bases from direct to garment, sublimation and screen printing to embroidery machinery. “There’s a lot of interest in digital garment printing, so there will be some new equipment on show for 2012.”
For many, it will be the first time to see the new printwear blanks for 2012 from all of the major distributors and suppliers.
According to Tony, Printwear & Promotion Live 2012 is going to be the biggest (and the best!) for some years.
New performance sports brand Dare 2b and sister brand, Regatta, will be sponsoring the popular daily fashion shows and for the first time, there will be a keynote presentation at 12 noon each day in the seminar suite. Taking the rostrum will be Continental Clothing together with the Soil Association and Sericol, who will be exploring screen printing inks for use in organic T shirt printing.
Printwear & Promotion Live is a one stop shop and a great opportunity to interface with all of the industry’s leading clothing distributors, equipment and accessory suppliers.

With new exhibitors, a lot of additional suppliers, new services, new products and new clothing brands, 2012 is set to be a vintage year. Certainly, sportswear is a major headline, so if visitors are looking to benefit from the increase in sportswear as a result of the Olympics and what will follow on from that, then Printwear & Promotion will provide an excellent starting point for them.”
