D – The premiere of GiveADays is to be staged at the Stuttgart Exhibition Centre from February 13-15, 2014. The international trade fair for promotional products will be taking place in the scope of the combined Expo 4.0 show that also comprises of the trade fairs TV TecStyleVisions (textiles), wetec (advertising technology, digital print and illuminated advertising) and DS Tec (digital advertising and information systems). The organisers of GiveADays, the gmk & WNP Fachmessen UG, now intend to expand the offer of the Expo 4.0 with promotional products. According to the organisers, this move is in response to the requests of many of the visitors and creates room for synergies.
The GiveADays will be visited by promotional products resellers, who have to verify their industry affiliation, whereby admission is not linked to the membership of a specific association. The organisers are expecting around 500 exhibitors to participate in the Expo 4.0 overall as well as an attendance of 15,000 international trade visitors (2012: 407 exhibitors, 13,966 visitors). Between 100 and 130 exhibitors are expected to participate in the GiveADays, comprising of promotional products suppliers and the providers of customising machines. The show is to be accompanied by a seminar programme. Admission to the fair is free as long as the visitors have pre-registered.
