Trade Only Ltd, the leading exhibition, marketing and media supplier to the promotional products industry has announced continued high demand from suppliers and manufacturers for space at their autumn regional shows, APG expo 2012. They report too that visitor registrations for the events are ahead of last year.
Recent companies signing up to exhibit include: Oldeani, Ralawise, Laltex, Pencom and Characteristix, while Ceramic Designs, BTC activeware, Pinpoint, Promotional Agencies and Juniper Trading have all opted to exhibit at the Dublin show as well.
Gail Kilcoyne, Exhibition Manager for APG expo 2012, commented: “With over 80 pitches already taken, we are really pleased with the numbers. We are delighted to welcome many regular and a good number of new exhibitors to the shows and are excited to be returning to Dublin once again after the success of the 2011 event with more than 50 exhibitors making the trip.”
The organisers have announced that pre-registration for the popular events is now open and can be accessed at www.tradeonly.co.uk/shows
The shows will use the popular email-badging and mobile-badging systems used with much success at TONS2012, as well as the ground-breaking electronic goody bag also pioneered at the National Show, whereby visitors who are scanned on-stand receive information enabling them to directly contact the exhibitors who scanned them.
Nigel Bailey, Event Director for the shows, added: “APG expo shows deliver excellent networking and meeting opportunities at the start of the crucial quartile four selling period. It is an important time for suppliers and distributors to get together. Many suppliers have new products to show at this time of the year and special offers to help distributors boost their sales”
Timed right at the start of the crucial second selling season, this year’s UK events will once again feature two larger format shows at Sandown Park Race Course and Exhibition Centre in Surrey and the Manchester Suite at Manchester United Football Club.
