Wholesalers embrace new plans for Trophex Live 2019

Plans are now well underway for Trophex ‘Live’ 2019 taking place at Sandown Park in Surrey on the 13th and 14th January next year.

As organisers of the show, we have been trying to visit as many Trophex Exhibitors as we can over the last few months to give them an insight into the plans and developments we have put in place for the show moving forward.

The launch of the new Trophy Retailers Association, which you can read all about in this month’s Trophex Magazine, is part of our strategy to work closer with the retailers and understand more about what they are looking to procure through the medium of an exhibition, and how we can make sure that Trophex delivers on those objectives.

We are working to introduce new initiatives that will incentivise the retailers to realise that an annual visit to Trophex is a must if they want to stay informed and up-to-date with the latest developments and products available from the UK’s leading wholesalers, and by alternating between the South and the North each year will provide the opportunity for exhibitors to reach a greater audience from a broader section of the UK and therefore, potentially deliver a greater footfall to the show.

John-Paul Cowan, Managing Director of Trendsetting Awards said; “It has been evident for the last couple of years that Trophex needed to align itself more closely with the changes in the industry, whilst providing a National Show at a large arena has worked well for a period of time, the Industry has changed somewhat over recent years and therefore, large venues such as the NEC have become cost prohibitive to smaller innovative companies that support the wholesale industry at Trophex.

“By moving to Sandown for 2019, and then to a venue in the North for 2020, I hope will encourage more retailers from those areas to visit the show and provide wholesalers like myself with the opportunity to meet, network and increase sales with a greater number of potential customers”.

Trendsetting Awards will be supporting the event once again for 2019, along with Transworld Trophies, Goodwill Trophies, Crystal Galleries, Amaya Sales UK and TheMagicTouch, HPC Laser, Clear View Products and many more.

Tony Ellis Managing Director at Transworld Trophies said; “A dedicated UK event for the Trophy, Awards and Engraving Industry is vital for UK Wholesalers to ensure we can maintain a ‘shop-window’ for our retail customers, being able to invite our customers to come and see our latest products and new Catalogue for the year in one place enables us to reach the market quickly and effectively in order to sustain a commercial advantage over our competitors”.

Tracey Greenfield, Show Organiser and Event & Sales Manager for Trophex said; “The support of the UK Wholesalers has been fundamental to taking the Trophex Exhibition in a new direction. As Organisers of the show it is imperative that we deliver a venue and location conducive to productive business relationships for the industry, we believe that the decision to cover both the North and the South will be advantageous to both exhibitors and visitors”.
