NL – Since 2012, the Leveranciersdagen have been staged as a joint initiative of the Dutch industry association PPP (Platform Promotional Products) and the Dutch publishing company, Het Portaal Uitgevers. As such, this year’s trade fair on September 4-5, 2013 once again carried the professional signature of the experienced organisers Het Portaal (PromZ, RelatieZ). The number of exhibitors had increased again compared to the previous year: According to the official figures, 122 suppliers (2012: 105) presented their wares and fares at the Jaarbeurs in Utrecht, including primarily Dutch companies, but also numerous suppliers from Belgium, Germany and further European countries. A seminar programme that was in some cases very well attended rounded off the event. Furthermore, on the evening of the first exhibition day the organisers elected the “Supplier of the Year 2013“ (New Wave) and the “Promotional Company of the Year“ (BeGlobal Promotions). According to the official figures, over the two days of the show 803 promotional products distributors (2012: 744) visited the fair, including PPP members as well as non-members. The Leveranciersdagen will be staged in Utrecht again next year on September 3-4, 2014.
A detailed report will appear in the next issue of eppi magazine, No. 95 (September 25, 2013).
