Printwear & Promotion LIVE!, the UK’s only event dedicated to garment decoration, has been postponed until 24 – 26 April as a result of the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the Omicron variant of Covid-19.

The rescheduled exhibition, which will still be taking place at the NEC in Birmingham, will still feature over 100 stands for visitors to explore. Exhibitors will include many leading digital printing companies as well as embroidery and finishing suppliers, clothing distributors and brands. However the change in dates also means a change in hall at the NEC to Hall 12. 

Tony Gardner, event director, explained the thinking behind the postponement. He said, ‘Although no further restrictions have come into place that affect the show taking place in February, following conversations with a large number of exhibitors, regarding the ongoing uncertainties in the UK, particularly the potential logistical issues caused by Omicron, we have looked at the options of postponing the show. Consequently, with the support of the NEC, we have been able to push the show back by two months.

‘For the successful and safer running of the show, we felt that it was the more sensible and prudent decision to take up the option of moving to April, in view of the current climate. All being well, the situation will be a lot better by then, with exhibitors and visitors being able to attend confident of a safer and better experience for all parties.’

Visitor registration remains open for the rescheduled event, though if you had already registered for the event in February, you do not need to register again.
