“Printwear & Promotion LIVE! is always a great platform to showcase both our new and existing product ranges. Most importantly, it is also the perfect opportunity to meet new and existing customers, whose loyalty and valued support enables us to continue to grow, and this year was no exception.”

Caroline Rylance, marketing, assistant, Beechfield Brands

“Printwear & Promotion LIVE! 2017 was our best show ever! We will definitely be back next year!”

Mark Hobkirk, managing director, Hobkirk Sewing Machines

“P&P LIVE! is a great forum to meet with customers new and old and receiving feedback on the ranges.”

Steve Smith, sales executive, Craghoppers

“The turnout was fantastic! We got to catch up with plenty of existing customers and we had so many new enquiries that by the end of the show we had completely run out of catalogues and business cards.”

Lee White, director, Cubbies

“Being a veteran of exhibiting at many shows and having a stand near to the rear of the hall, I know what to expect. Usually it takes a while for visitors to make their way to the stand. However, on Sunday we seemed busy from the off and this carried on through most of the day not quietening down till 3ish. The next two days, although not so busy saw us take a good number of leads from family businesses right up to multi-nations; a really good mix of businesses.”

James Carpenter, managing director, Doro Tape UK

“In my experience over the last 21 years of attending Printwear & Promotion LIVE!, I can honestly say, I think this was the best show ever. The quality of potential customers visiting this year was phenomenal. Every enquiry was a quality enquiry and the general feedback from visitors was that our trade is busy, growing and everyone was generally ultra-positive about the future.”

Scott Mason, sales manager, AJS Embroidery Services

“Wow! Printwear & Promotion LIVE! was a great exhibition for us to reach out to even more retailers. Not only are more retailers now aware of service we provide, but we’re also moving forward with those we’ve met at the show. We look forward to working with Printwear & Promotion LIVE! next year.”

Michael Bloom, director, Top to Toe

“For the second year running, Eskimo EPOS enjoyed a successful time at Printwear & Promotion LIVE! We came away with a number of very exciting leads and had some very promising conversations with potential customers, a number of which have already agreed to further meetings. As always we found the organisers had done a great job in making the whole exhibition run smoothly.”

Gary Dyett, sales manager, Eskimo EPOS

“Printwear & Promotion LIVE! 2017 was a great show for us yet again. It is always one of the most important dates in our calendar. Where else can customers see what’s new and evolving within the industry?”

Neil Stevenson, commercial director and UK MD, Grafityp

“P&P LIVE! was a resounding success for the Xpres and Kustom Kit teams. The footfall of visitors to the stand exceeded all expectations, to point that extra badge scanners had to be ordered.”

Ryan Hornbuckle, marketing director, Xpres and Kustom Kit

“We’re very enthusiastic about the show, the organising team are always very helpful, and the interest at the show is always high – hence why we always attend.”

Ian McDowell, technical support, Nova Chrome

“We had a fantastic show with over 200 new contacts, and 34 new accounts opened already… within seven days of the show ending.”

Alan Horder, director, LEGEA

“We are extremely pleased with our first exhibition at Printwear & Promotion LIVE! 2017. We clearly were offering a new opportunity to show visitors – or so they kept telling us over the busy three days! The majority of people we spoke to, however, had not heard about us and we are excited to be working with over 190 new customers as a result of being at the show!”

Dan Rogers, key account manager, The Outdoors Company

“Printwear & Promotion LIVE! 2017 really set the bar as the liveliest and most exciting show yet! The garment embellishment and promotional industry being what it is, Printwear & Promotion LIVE! always feels like catching up with friends, and of course it is always a pleasure to see our threads running on so many machines.”

Karen Burrows, managing director, Madeira UK

“Printwear & Promotion LIVE! 2017 was felt as a great success for Team Prestige. We were thrilled by the quality of visitors to our stand. The show is not to be missed. Our time there is so valuable, and we are already buzzing with ideas on what we can be doing for next year.”

Teri-Louise Deegan, marketing and communications, Prestige Leisure UK

“Well what can I say about P&P LIVE! 2017 other than it was another fantastic show!”

Toby Pache, managing director, Sharon Lee

“After this year’s show Printwear & Promotion LIVE! remains the uncontested trade show highlight in our calendar. Stocks looks forward to sharing more innovations with visitors next year!”

Andrew Stocks, managing director, Stocks Sewing & Embroidery Solutions

“The show is a perfect environment to meet customers new and old. The calibre of visitors is very high, you know people are here to do business. We were busy throughout the show, it’s a real reflection of the confidence and buoyant nature of the market at the moment.”

A spokesman for Fruit of the Loom

“The quality of the visitors at P&P LIVE! is excellent. For our brand, this is one of the best shows in Europe.”
