Visitor registration has opened for next February’s edition of Printwear & Promotion LIVE! With 2021 being the first year in the last thirty where the event didn’t take place, the organisers are expecting a strong showing from both exhibitors and visitors when the exhibition returns from 20 – 22 February 2022. 

The team behind Printwear and Promotion recently commissioned a survey of everyone who attended the 2020 exhibition, that last one to take place before the pandemic struck. Over 75% of respondents said that they were either ‘definitely going to’ or ‘very likely’ to visit in 2022. When this is combined with the regular number of first time visitors being around 2000, the organisers are confident of attracting more than 5,500 people to Hall 20 of the NEC in Birmingham next February.

In terms of exhibitors there are currently more than 100 stands on the floorplan, with Printwear and Promotion saying that ‘the vast majority of the major equipment suppliers, clothing distributors and brands’ are already onboard.

Show director Tony Gardner commented, ‘It is really pleasing to see the level of commitment from our regular exhibitors, together with the firm intentions of our visitors to be back in force again in 2022. We also have several new exhibitors signed up, which are sure to be of interest to visitors. As things stand, we are very confident of putting on another successful show and following a year of the industry not being able to come together, fully expect it to live up to its tag line of The Unmissable Reunion!’

Specific topics that will be covered as part of the show’s seminar programme are set to be announced later in the year, though sessions are expected to cover all aspects of garment decoration, including embroidery, direct to garment printing and dye sublimation.
