2019 Visitor Testimonials

Read what some of our visitors had to say about Printwear & Promotion LIVE! 2019.


Annmarie and Justin Ridyard of Logo That Polo

“It was great to see all of the 2019 styles under one roof. Madeira has literally saved our life with their colour card, now we can accurately match our threads. We also didn’t realise they did more than threads, which is really useful to know. We also discovered PRO RTX and loved the quality of their workwear. We would love to come back again. P&P LIVE! exceeded our expectations and everyone we spoke to was extremely helpful. We have come away knowing so much more than we do now.”

Roy Marshall of arthouse25.co.uk

“I’ve been coming to the show for years. We come to visit our regular suppliers and to see what’s new and if there is anything else we can add to the business. I normally add something extra on to what we do every year, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. I will be back next year and would definitely recommend the show.”

Dorian Tranter and Louis Georgiou of Essential Embroidery Design

“I’ve been attending the show for the last six or seven years. I deal quite a bit with Xpres and Ralawise, so it was nice to catch up with them. I didn’t attend the show for any particular reason, just to see if there’s anything new out there on the market. I’ll be back next year for sure!”

Katja Montola and Tiina Ratilainen of SkyPro Oy

“We have come all the way from Finland to attend! We have found plenty of new products and ideas for us to take back. We love Next Level Apparel and are so pleased to have found them! We love the show and would definitely recommend it to others.”

Kasim Akhtar and Danyar Mahmood of Amigos Black

“This was our first visit to Printwear & Promotion LIVE! We came looking for high-end quality clothing that we can put our branding on – and I think we hit lucky! If our business idea hits off, then there’s no reason why we wouldn’t return!”

Gareth Gladwin of DTB Europe

“I would say I have visited Printwear & Promotion LIVE! around four or five times. I mainly come to see what others in the industry are doing. It’s interesting to see where we are in the market and whether we are on the right path. I always find the show interesting – there is always something that catches my eye. I have enjoyed the show this year!”

Robert Dearden and Danielle Lewis-Daniels of O’Neills Sportswear

“It was our first visit to the show. We came to just get some general ideas. We are both designers so came to get inspiration. The variety of clothing on display is amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed the exhibition. I think we’ll be back next year.”

Mick and Sam Bowden, director and screen printer, Wetherby Screen Print

“We came with a view to upgrading our screen print carousel. We probably will invest in a new M&R carousel within the next three months. We also came to take a look at the new garments on the market. It’s great to see everything under one roof. There don’t seem to be any reps on the road anymore, so this show is a great place to come and meet them.”


Ed Worley and Ruth Hewitt of P-Nut London

“It was our first time at Printwear & Promotion LIVE! We are planning on starting a new clothing brand, so we thought we would come to check out new clothing suppliers and the different print techniques. The next step for us is to buy a printer to get going with our heat press. From what we have seen of the exhibition we would definitely come again.”

Tanya Reynolds, Untame Domain and Dan Gurner, Precision Design and Print

“It was our first time at P&P LIVE! One of our suppliers, Merlin Transfers, said they were exhibiting, said how good it was and suggested we visit. We have found the exhibition really informative – there’s so much more clothing here than we realised there would be. We came to source a new clothing supplier, we are very interested in Next Level Apparel and Écologie by AWDis. We loved the Skate Ramp – it really shows the flexibility of the clothing. We would definitely come back again!”

Lara Seal, Sally Pate and Emma Wall, Shires Equestrian

“This was our second time at the exhibition. We came with a plan of action and found exactly what we were looking for. We have recommended the show to others in our industry and some of them came along this year. We find the show useful and would definitely come again.”
