What is Merchandise World?

Merchandise World is a unique concept which combines a traditional exhibition, a networking event and (optional) appointment booking. The event is for all the sales & administration teams, management and directors from invited professional distributor companies across the UK & Ireland.

Our visitors can choose to see the latest and hottest products from the industry's top suppliers in a traditional exhibition format, or, by appointment in a Conversation Area on an exhibition stand, or on a Conversation Pod. There is no limit to the number of company personnel able to attend from any invited distributor company.

Over 1700 Professional Distributor Companies with approaching 4500 Visitors are invited to Merchandise World, from which over 650 Companies with 2500+ Team Members would be admitted free. The other professional distributors are also able to attend by paid (and potentially refundable) entrance. The Merchandise World Visitor Policy can be viewed by clicking here.

The entire UK promotional merchandise market spend is in excess of £950m. Merchandise World has tremendous support from the industry’s professional distributors and the expectation is that the majority of the industry’s top distributors will be attending the event.

Merchandise World is held twice a year in the key seasons: September (The Peak Season) and January (The New Year), which are the perfect times for professional distributors to see new products and to be reminded of top sellers.

Merchandise World is jointly owned by the BPMA and Sourcing City following the merger of The BPMA Show and Sourcing City Marketplace in 2017.

Sourcing City and the BPMA have a proven track record in delivering high quality events to our industry, and we're thrilled to be working together to raise the bar even higher. We know what it takes to deliver maximum value to both suppliers and distributors, particularly in retaining a focus on the quality and professionalism of those attending this exciting new event.
