Promota exhibition to move venues and dates for 2011
by Annie Byrne
The organiser of promotional merchandise exhibition Promota will move the show to Telford for its 2011 edition.The show will relocate from The NEC, Birmingham to the Telford International Exhibition Centre next June, which represents a date move from March. This follows the show’s co-location with the Printwear and Promotion event this year.“We want to give members and visitors something different and Telford ticked all our boxes,” show director David Webster told EN. “Also, our members were happy with a date change, as the first quarter of the year is already busy with other industry exhibitions and road shows.” Webster said research on industry distributors added weight to the date change. Most respondents said they would be more receptive to new ideas in June and have time to plan the last quarter’s selling season.Promota 2011 will take place on 8 and 9 June.
