Book now to visit Promota in Birmingham

The UK's longest-running independent trade exhibition for the promotional merchandise industry is being held at Birmingham's NEC on 1 and 2 March.

Promota Chairman Rod Duncan said the initiative - together with the fact that the show is co-locating with Printwear and Promotion - means there is real reason to celebrate 21 years of successful exhibitions.

"We've got two great shows in one venue, we're at the UK's premier exhibition centre and we're making sure it is the best possible use of members' time," he says.

"We know that because members and non-members have told us that we need to provide an exhibition of excellence. That means access to key suppliers, great leads, networking opportunities and fantastic savings - all set in a stunning venue that's easy to get to by road, rail or air."

The show is open to all genuine distributors and resellers of promotional merchandise. All non-member companies will be vetted by the association prior to the show to ensure that only quality visitors walk through the doors.

Rob Morgan of BSB Sports & Leisure, said: "For exhibitors, it's vital the show acts as a highly informative showcase for the industry and attracts bona fide distributors from all parts of the UK who will be able to see and discuss all the leading products available for the next 12 months. We've had a very long association with the International Promota show and are proud to be continuing that in 2010 and the years to follow."

Non-members can register to visit the show at www.show.promota.co.uk where further information on joining Promota is also available.
