Merchandise World, the exhibition for the promotional merchandise market of the United Kingdom and Ireland, has signed a deal to return to the Coventry Building Society Arena for three additional years.
Merchandise World is held annually in January and has committed the future of its New Year event to Coventry until 2026.
The invitation-only event which targets sales and administration teams, management and directors from professional distributor companies across the UK and Ireland, welcomed more than 1,400 visitors over two days this year and saw visitor numbers return to pre-pandemic levels.
„We have hosted three shows at the venue since moving our New Year show there in 2020 and it has been perfect for us.“
Ella Long, event organiser of Merchandise World
