Record Success at the bpma 2012 Pavilion at PSI Germany

Posted on 18/01/2012 by Henk KROON

Mots clés : ,

PSI-dusseldorf1The bpma co-exhibited alongside 8 supplier members who included: Bio Laboratories, SPS, Trade Only, Bite Promotions, I Name It, The Logo Lollipop company, Oakthrift & Dunelm Glass. Collectively over 2000 business contacts were made and over 100 product quotations were amassed by the group during the 3 day show. “We exhibited at the 2012 PSI show to develop our ongoing business with existing European contacts and to look for new business contacts in Europe. The chance to do this with the BPMA pavilion this year was a great opportunity and has certainly helped us make contact with number of potentially new big distributors in France and Germany in particular.” Comments Ian Webb from Bio Laboratories.

Through the bpma’s ATO status with UK Trade and Investment, £17,000 of government funding was awarded to the pavilion exhibitors, supporting them in their export strategy for business growth.
Ian Webb from Bio Laboratories continues to comment “The PSI Show and the BPMA pavilion as always were well organised and with the added help of the support of the additional government funding it makes life much easier for a supplier to concentrate on the important part of developing business and contacts than the worry of organising the show”

Tammy Butler from I Name it comments “This was our first experience at PSI in Germany and the BPMA and show organizers did a fantastic job ensuring everything went smoothly and went out of their way to make sure I had everything I needed. The show itself was far larger than I expected and ran out of samples and brochures halfway through day …. As long as the government funding continues to help us with the costs, we will be planning to attend each year moving forward”

1st time oversea’s exhibitor Dunelm Glass commissioned a PSI Crystal trophy in the shape of the Dusseldorf Tower to mark the prestigious Trade Show’s 50th Anniversary. This was presented to Michel Freter, Managing Director of PSI on the bpma stand at a drinks reception attended by bpma supplier and distributor members and Trade Press. Michael Freter commented “it is an honour to accept this specially commissioned trophy… i would like to thank Dunelm Glass, bpma and all exhibitors representing the UK for their support, we look forward to working with you and welcoming you to the show in 2013”

Director General, Gordon Glenister commented on the event “We have worked very closely with PSI over the last year and will continue to work closely with mainland European networks to provide a platform for UK suppliers to access and take a greater share of the European Market”

Chris Smith from Dunelm Glass says “The quality of the show itself in relation to visitors was brilliant, we spoke to many people from all over Europe and gained some useful contacts, you can never tell with these events but in terms of quality leads we have some fantastic potential opportunities to follow up with.”

PREMIUM SOURCING PARIS

premium sourcing docks en seine parisThe meetings for promotional product, business gift and textile industry in Paris.

As partners in the publishing domain since the end of 2010, and following the merging of the European Sourcing Mag and C!mag magazines – which has since become the only trade magazine targeting an audience of promotional gift and promotional garment retailers – the European Sourcing Group and 656 Editions in 2011 are marking the start of their collaboration in the event management field through the joint organising of the Premium Sourcing exhibition to be held on September 7 and 8, in Paris.

These meetings for the promotional gift, promotional garment and corporate gift professionals will be held at Docks en Seine, at La “Cité de la Mode et du Design”. Its international influence provides an exclusive location for hosting major players in the market. In fact, on the exhibitors’ side, the organisers are expecting more than 80 key manufacturers and importers in the promotional sector and, on the visitors’ side, 1,500 to 2,000 targeted companies are expected to attend.

To ensure this new concept remains friendly, yet focused, access to Premium Sourcing will be strictly reserved for professional distributors of promotional gifts, promotional garments and corporate gifts, and exclusively at the invitation of their supplier. At the stands, they will find a selection of innovative and best-selling products geared towards their year-end  projects. In addition, the limited size of the event will ensure business relations are optimised.
Organised over a period which lends itself to preparing for the key period of the last quarter, Premium Sourcing is considered as the perfect complement to the CTCO exhibition which have, over the past 4 years, become the key trade events of the beginning of the year.

Yours sincerely,
The European Sourcing Group & 656 Editions teams.

las vegasLast week we visited the PPAI show in Las Vegas, Surely the most important promotional product industry event in the USA, to be compared with the Düsseldorf PSI in Europe.

PPAI did not yet release information about the number of visitors or exhibitors yet, but according to information from the exibitors the attendee was down with at least 20% compared to last year, we could clearly see this at the show, there was for sure activity but it wasn’t hectic as it used to be other years. Same for the number of exibitors, estimated to be at least 10% less than last year, maybe more.
