How was Merchandise World for Sharon Lee?

Published - 9th February, 2018

What can we say about Merchandise World?

The first two months of the year is always a busy time for those attending trade shows. With 3 major shows happening in this period (PPD Live, Printwear and Promotion and Merchandise World), we took the decision to only attend Merchandise World as we thought it would be the most beneficial to our company. We don’t regret our decision in the slightest!

The event was held at the home of British Motor Racing: Silverstone, and everyone who attended raced into the halls to take a look at what the specialist suppliers had to offer. The atmosphere was simply brilliant.

Not only did Merchandise World provide Sharon Lee with an excellent platform to showcase our products, but it also gave us the opportunity to show off our new stand too. We decided to do something a little different this year, giving a more “industrial feel” to our display; with distressed wooden shelves heavy duty steel poles and new stylish graphic boards. We even included a retro gaming console! Oh yes, and we did show a lot of exciting additions to our range too!

What was our experience at Merchandise World?

It was a huge pleasure to welcome clients, old and new onto our stand. Having meaningful and insightful discussions with them was a real benefit. Whether old or new, it’s always great to connect with like-minded businesses.

We also believe that it is very important for our Sales & Marketing team to get benefit from the trade show experience. So we sent all 5 of our sales team and the two members of our marketing team to make the most of this terrific show. Plus is was also a lot of fun to beat some of the Merchandise World attendees at sensible soccer!

A Final thought

Merchandise world was a great experience and we are so glad that we attended! Sharon Lee have always focused on quality products and great customer service, so it was amazing to hear many of the visitors had the same ethos as us.
