Staff your Event – Exhibitors prepare for Autumn Fair, DSEI and WTM
As 2015 continues to fly by, we still have plenty more major trade exhibitions around the corner and it’s definitely not too late to enlist the help of Event Hosts to staff your event.
We are receiving a regular influx of marketing emails from some of our favourite venues such as the London Excel and the Birmingham NEC and are seeing plans take shape from the huge range of exhibitors who will be attending and needing staff at these events.
Staff your Event – Autumn Fair 6th – 9th September.
The Autumn Fair at the Birmingham NEC is one of the biggest and most popular events in the general retail industry calendar. Tickets for Autumn Fair are free and attendees are likely to be a mixture of independent shop owners, multiple high-street retailers, shopaholics, manufacturers and plenty of trade press too. 1380 exhibitors attend to tempt buyers to try their product and negotiate new stockist terms. Exhibitors include new, emerging and lesser known brands who want to get in front of the retail world. Many of the businesses are independently run and will rely on promotional staff for the day in order to make the most of their stand and costs. The exhibition is backed by the UK government department of trade and Investment (UKTI). With so much to look at many retailers and buyers travel from all around the UK and will stay in Birmingham to attend all three days of the event. In order to stand out from the crowd and attract the attention of the buyers it’s very important to have a good team on your side, and even work the room telling people about your brand, which is just how Event Hosts can help. It’s not too late to book us for Autumn Fair if you get in touch today.
Staff your Event – Defence and Security Equipment International 15th -18th September.
DSEI, the world-leading defence and security event from Clarion Events is just a few weeks away and now 97% booked. However, there is still the chance to have a stand at this high footfall exhibition and conference at Excel London. Clarion Events have a wide range of media partners for DSEI and it’s the perfect opportunity to gain fantastic marketing shots if you staff your event stand with professional exhibition staff from Event Hosts.
Staff your Event – World Travel Market 2nd – 5th November.
WTM (World Travel Market) is another large exhibition at Excel London that spans four days in November. WTM has been established for 36 years and has also built up a large bank of media partners.
An interesting part of the WTM programme is the speed networking, which includes to 1 hour sessions of five minute matches of exhibitors and over 300 senior buyers. If you want to attend the networking with your sales team but would struggle to staff your event stand and the same time, then the Events Host team can certainly help “hold the fort” and more whilst your sales team and directors work their charm with new clients in the speed networking arena.
