The last two years of exhibitions and trade shows were disrupted thanks to the pandemic, but the 2022 calendar looks promising with many events planned across all industries. THEMPC can help you with both your exhibition planning and your event merchandise. 

While virtual events have been a great way for businesses and delegates to stay connected during lockdowns and travel restrictions, there is something to be said about the hubbub of an exhibition hall. Exhibitions are the platform to boost brand awareness, launch a new product or service, and expand networks. 

Exciting events on the horizon 

It’s heartening to see innovative Tech events such as the IOT Tech Expo and London Tech Week  are in the expo diary. And we’re really excited that the tantalising Food & Drink Expo will take place at the NEC Birmingham. For all the book-lovers out there, London Bookfair will be back face-to-face, after being a virtual event in 2021! Whatever your industry and whatever your needs are, we can help get you organised.

No matter the event we have your back
