Following the results of a recent survey, the organisers of Merchandise World (BPMA and Sourcing City) have decided that the new event will take place in either late January or early February 2018.
More than 85% of the respondents to the survey said they would attend a Merchandise World exhibition, exclusively for professional distributors in January/February 2018 in the Midlands.
No firm date as been announced.
Merchandise World 2017 will still take place from September 19 to 20 2017 at Stoneleigh, Warwickshire.
Merchandise World is a unique exhibition and networking event, which brings together Sourcing City Marketplace and The BPMA Show.
Merchandise World is aimed at the sales and administration teams, management and directors from invited professional distributor companies from across the UK and Ireland.
Visitors can choose to see exhibitors in a traditional exhibition format, or by appointment in a Conversation Area on an exhibition stand, or in a Conversation Pod.
