Regarded as the annual launch pad for new garment decoration equipment, accessories and clothing lines, Printwear & Promotion LIVE! will launch into a new decade in 2020 with a new event  and registration is now open!

The show’s move to January dates has proven to be a success among garment decoration professionals, with 2019 enjoying a record-breaking turnout of over 6,200 visitors (Total: 6,297; Unique: 5,977). Printwear & Promotion LIVE! will once again open its doors in Hall 17 & 18 at the NEC, Birmingham from Sunday, January 19 through to Tuesday, January 21.

Show director Tony Gardner comments: “The continued growth in visitor numbers and exhibitor enthusiasm serves as confirmation that January is the ideal time for the show to take place. Not only do our exhibitors get the opportunity to showcase their latest products to the market a month earlier, but attendees can take time out of their business at a traditionally quieter time to find products, solutions and advice to help their businesses thrive over the year ahead.”

The show will continue its legacy of providing a vibrant, dynamic and interactive event for the garment decoration industry.

As well as the chance to meet with brand representatives and see live product demonstrations from many of the 150 new and returning exhibitors, attendees can gain even more from their visit by stopping by one of the show’s many lively feature areas.

Those wanting to witness some of the key styles featured in leading suppliers’ 2020 catalogues first-hand should stop by the ever-popular daily fashion shows, sponsored by Regatta Professional.
Attendees that are looking to top-up their knowledge and pick up tips, tricks and advice from industry experts can pay a visit to one of the shows two seminar theatres. The Decoration Advice Suite will host professionals providing tips and advice on every type of decoration technique, while The Knowledge Centre welcomes speakers to share their knowledge with small businesses and start-ups, with advice specific to the printwear sector. Full details of these programmes will be confirmed as the show draws closer.

Visitors can also get hands on in the Screen Print Workshop, with live demonstrations and seminars suited for both experts and novices alike.

Printwear & Promotion LIVE! is the annual meeting place for the industry, so whether you’re already established in the world of garment decoration or looking to take your first steps into the industry, the show is an opportunity to network with likeminded professionals and is certainly not to be missed!
