ElsieB on Tour – Exhibitions in the UK

The IFEMA UK & Ireland delegation have been busy visiting a number of local trade fairs in recent weeks, promoting IFEMA shows to potential exhibitors.  

Amongst these was Bett (20-23 Jan at ExCel), the leading education technology show in the UK. We were delighted to assist the SIMO EDUCACIÓN team on their stand for the duration of the show. As always, the show was well attended, with even the Duke of York putting in an appearance. The free SIMO EDUCACIÓN fans we handed out to exhibitors proved to be a real hit and a great ice-breaker. Check out our Twitter feed for some great photos of our lovely fans.

From 4th – 9th February, the UK’s number 1 trade show for gift and home, Spring Fair, took over the Birmingham NEC, welcoming more than 60,000 visitors. The show is always a great source of potential new business and we had a great day networking for a number of IFEMA shows including  MOMAD METROPOLIS, INTERGIFT, BISUTEX and MADRIDJOYA

Pure London, held at Olympia from 123th -14th February provided a fantastic opportunity for the team to network with UK brands and industry professionals, see the key AW 17/18 trends and speak to existing and potential exhibitors for the next edition of MOMAD METROPOLIS. What better day to visit than on Valentine’s Day? Love was most certainly in the air as we browsed some gorgeous new products.  Check out our tweets from the day here.

We also spend a day talking shop with some lovely exhibitors at the UK’s leading franchise exhibition, The Franchise Show (17-18 Feb at ExCel). Souring new leads for EXPOFRANQUICIA (20-22 April) in Madrid has never been such fun. Once again, our freebie fans went down very well as things started to heat up in the exhibition hall!  Take a look at some of our snaps from the day here. Follow us on Instagram @ifemaukireland to keep up to date with all the latest news and show visits.

And don’t forget….the deadline for the forthcoming FRUIT ATTRACTION is fast approaching!  Get those applications in by 5th April!
