UK – To kick off the year-end business, the British industry service provider Trade Only once again organised the APG expo this year. The contact platform for promotional products suppliers and distributors supplements the Trade Only National Show – the biggest British promotional products trade fair – that is held in February as well as the Spring Shows.
The series of events that was able to set a new exhibitor record with the participation of 115 suppliers got underway on September 10, 2014 in the Sandown Park Exhibition Centre in Esher, South England, before stopping off at Manchester United Football Club the next day. On September 17, the roadshow reached its final destination at the Red Cow Moran Hotel in Dublin, Ireland.
According to official accounts, overall more than 600 distributors took this opportunity to inform themselves about the latest trends in a relaxed atmosphere. “Time and again, APG delivers what people want at this time of the year – face-to-face contact between exhibitors and distributors. We had a number of first time exhibitors this year, who were amazed at how effective the shows were. Visitor quality was also very good with many leading distributors in attendance,” commented Nigel Bailey, Event Director at Trade Only.
