Printwear & Promotion LIVE! moves to January dates in 2018

Printwear & Promotion LIVE! 2018 returns a month earlier than its usual dates and following further growth will now be held in Halls 17 & 18 at the NEC, Birmingham from Sunday, January 21 to Tuesday, January 23, 2018.

January is traditionally a little quieter for the garment decoration market, thus it is expected that the January dates will enable even more to attend than the 5,367 who visited this year. It is also the time when new clothing lines from the major brands are launched, so being able to showcase these to the market a month earlier is seen as a real benefit by the clothing brands and distributors exhibiting at the show.

As the only dedicated event for the UK garment decoration industry, the show provides an interactive event for its visitors with workshops, seminars, advice from industry experts and on stand demonstrations.

The new strap line for the 2018 show ‘Where the action is’, reflects the fact that the show is now an annual launch pad used to demonstrate new equipment and to showcase new clothing lines, it also echoes the ‘LIVE!’ aspect of Printwear & Promotion, presenting the industry in a vibrant, dynamic and ‘hands on’ way.

A one-stop-shop for printwear professionals, as well as those looking to enter the market, the exhibition features around 160 stands from all sectors of the garment and product decoration market, including around 60 clothing brands, distributors and all of the major decoration equipment and accessory suppliers covering direct to garment, sublimation, transfer and screen printing and embroidery.

90% of the floor space has now been sold and the 2018 show is on target to exceed this year’s record amount of stand space sold.

Online registration will open in October.
