Promotional products exhibition Merchandise World returned on Wednesday, September 8 at the Marshall Area, Milton Keynes.
After 18 months of the COVID-19 pandemic, the networking event was the first national industry exhibition held since February 2020.
Around 80 exhibitors booked stands to meet with distributors, including USB2U, Preseli and Sharon Lee.
Expectations for visitor numbers were low, but on the day around 400 distributors attended the show. According to Sourcing City News, many exhibitors commented on the high quality of the people they were speaking to and were delighted that their commitment to the show had paid off.
The next Merchandise World will take place on Wednesday, January 26 and Thursday, January 27 at the CBS Arena in Coventry.
