UK – The 30th Printwear and Promotion Live! took place at the NEC in Birmingham from January 20-22, 2019. According to the organiser, Datateam, the exhibition for the UK garment decoration industry featured over 150 exhibitors (2018: 150) and saw 6,297 visitors (2019: 5.918), thereby setting a new all-time visitor record in its anniversary year. The annual show is a one-stop-shop for printers, embroiderers, retailers and promotional product distributors. In addition to the exhibitors showcasing the latest equipment, supplies and garments, visitors were also spoilt for choice with a number of exciting and informative feature areas – including two knowledge-packed seminar theatres, Screen Print Workshops, the Bag & Headwear Decoration Advice stand, daily Fashion Shows and a brand new adrenaline-filled Skate Ramp.
“I am absolutely delighted that we have exceeded 6,200 visitors for the first time, which is a new record in the show’s history”, show director Tony Gardner said. “Following on from the record number of visitors last year, this year’s success further endorses the decision to switch the show to January.”
