One of the UK’s largest event venue is celebrating a flying start to 2015 with a number of successful exhibitions. Excel London has already welcomed thousands of exhibitors and visitors through its doors for the London Boat Show, The Telegraph Cruise Show and the debut London Classic Car Show.
In its 11th year at the capital city venue, the London Boat Show achieved a 4% visitor increase, with 92,000 people attending including royal and celebrity visitors. Returning for its second year, the Telegraph Cruise Show reported a 91% increase in exhibitors and 3% in visitors. The first ever Classic Car Show welcomed over 25,000 visitors over its three days, and sold a £1.5m Ferrari.
Jeremy Rees, Executive Director at Excel London said of the early 2015 boost: “We firmly believe in working in partnership with our clients and continuously investing in our venue to ensure we provide the right environment for people to do business. The success of the shows and reported business achieved is testament to that.”
Visitor numbers at exhibitions and trade shows continue to grow year on year, which is a testament to the business events industry. Face to face marketing events are becoming more popular as people search for products and services with personal interaction compared to a digitised process.
Mark Thompson, Sales Director at Printdesigns said, “2015 is set to be a huge year for exhibitions, with numbers increasing for the smaller and newer events in addition to the larger, more established shows. It’s a great business opportunity for all industries, and exhibitions now have a huge relevance in today’s business arena.”
Printdesigns is a UK based display stand supplier which supports businesses of all sizes attending trade events and exhibitions. When it comes to marketing supplies and designing a booth usually big money gets best results – but with Printdesigns SMEs and self-employed individuals can achieve the same professional results for less.
The company’s website retails a vast array of exhibition stands including roller banner stands, modular exhibition stands, fabric display stands, eco banner stands and shell clad systems. Its budget deals offer the best value on the web, as businesses can buy two roller banner stands for just £75, with no compromise on the professional printing quality.
Furthermore, Printdesigns is the only UK exhibition stand supplier which designs, prints and finishes all of its products in-house rather than outsourcing manufacturing to overseas. That means quality is always matched to British standards and customer receive a fast turnaround.
Mark added, “The interest in exhibitions is growing, as the success of 2015’s first London events shows. We want to help all businesses get to industry events, which is why we offer the lowest prices on exhibition essentials.”
