Dates announced for 2019 Print & Stitch road shows

Visitors at the Leeds Print & Stitch event

Now in its third year the Print & Stitch regional trade shows continue to grow in both popularity and with increasing visitor attendance.

Whether you are looking to start your own business, expand an existing business or simply make contact with leading suppliers, the Print & Stitch road shows offer something for everyone.

This year’s shows are now hosted by 10 of the UK’s leading suppliers of all things relating to garment decoration, apparel, e-commerce and promotional products. The selection of exhibitors cover all the key aspects of the industry.

The most recent event in Leeds was attended by over 100 different visitors with the majority travelling no further than an hour from the venue and all having the time to digest all that was on offer from 10am to 7pm. All events are free to attend with light refreshments and free parking available.

Andrew Stocks, managing director of Stocks Sewing Machines, said: “While the annual Printwear & Promotion LIVE! at the NEC in January still remains the industry’s main event, there is a need for suppliers to get out and meet, listen, and understand customers’ needs in a more relaxed and open environment.”

Dates and locations for 2019:

  • Thursday, July 11 – Hilton, Croydon
  • Thursday, October 17 – Aztec Hotel & Spa, Bristol
  • Thursday, November 6 – Novotel Nottingham Derby, Nottingham

The plan for 2020 is to increase the number of events and to consider new locations and venues.

Exhibitors include Stocks Sewing Machines, TheMagicTouch, Ralawise, BTC activewear, Madeira, Wilcom, Beechfield Brands, DecoNetwork and  Yoko International.
