All eyes are on Merchandise World for April 2022

With news of the date change from January to April 2022 before Christmas, the industry is looking ahead and planning for an exciting Merchandise World at the CBS Arena, Coventry. After the industry experienced a successful show in September, the appetite to get everyone back together is well timed with business enquiries starting to build after the new year break.

Registrations are open for the show in April and with an enthusiastic response already, the strong call to action is for distributors to re-engage with suppliers they know and a great opportunity to meet those they don’t. Exhibitors are a vast range and variety of suppliers making Merchandise World is a truly unique UK experience for the trade. 

Kicking off on Wednesday 13th April at CBS Arena in Coventry (formerly the Ricoh Arena), the first day also celebrates the BPMA Awards in the evening. The two-day event concludes at 3pm on Thursday 14th April. Look out for the BPMA speaker programme for the event with bite size topics to inform and engage. Breakfast, lunch, and refreshments are also provided at the show to make sure every comfort is catered for. 

Merchandise World organisers said “As each day passes, confidence grows for the future. Now is a key time to be looking ahead, planning to re-engage with existing and new suppliers.” With news the UK economy is bouncing back faster than any other world economy, we are expecting paused budgets to move again and it’s imperative the industry has the advantage to move fast to answer demands.
