Having travelled to promotional gifting industry shows all over the world, it has always been clearly visible to me the level of importance both suppliers and distributors place on their annual industry show. As a supplier, the Markex Trade Show provides us with the opportunity to time our new catalogue release with this event, thus launching many new products and services in conjunction with it.

All the customers are here, this is where they come. This is where you get to meet new customers. And if you’re in the trade, it’s a vital place to be.

Our 3D printer proved to be a major attraction to our stand at Markex 2015. We managed to scan a great number of name tags and even had to call in more staff to man the stand on the first day of the show. It was great to see new faces visiting the expo.
