promotional gift exhibition will take place again at Magna Science & Adventure Centre in Rotherham which is a fantastic WOW factor venue, has great access, plenty of parking and located in close proximity to the M1 motorway, to make it easier for visitors to make the short (or long!) journey to the exhibition. The venue was an extremely popular choice with exhibitors and visitors alike. With a winning venue, and following the success of the format of our previous promotional gift exhibition in 2007, the blue print for a great show has been established and there is little point in changing this around. However, and as with everything, change is a good thing and we will be ensuring we spice the event up to give the end user something different and a reason to come and join us on the day. The Steel City Marketing Promotional Gifts Exhibition of 2007 brought together 26 of the UK’s leading importers and manufacturers within the business and promotional giveaway industry under one roof. As experts in their fields, and accompanied by a full range of their specific product areas on display, visitors were able to go to each at their leisure and maybe find either that something different, a new idea or the possibility to cost cut on a standard merchandise item. Business cards were entered into a hourly raffle draw for such prizes as an ipod, and 32” LCD TV and signed Sheffield United and Wednesday framed shirts. The initial response at the time for the 2007 Promotional Gifts Exhibition was fantastic and this continued on the day, with above expectation footfall. We were delighted with the response but this has set the bar high to achieve an even bigger and better visitor list for the 2009 exhibition. Plans are underway, invites are being prepared and the whole team at Steel City Marketing are very excited about making sure the 2009 Promotional Gifts Exhibition is talked about and provides many great ideas for any key decision makers and marketers who deal in the business gift and promotional giveaway area.
