There is only one week to go to the BPMA Show taking place on the 14th September at Silverstone. The show sees us launch our brand new websites for promotional products. 

We recently joined the BPMA as an associate member so we are excited to meet some more of the associations fellow members and discuss how we feel we can help the industry with the challenges it faces when trading online.

Why you should attend...

Promotional products week...

The show takes place during Promotional Products week (12th-16th September) and we recently received our official mascot for the week 'Ellie the Elephant'. We have been a big fan of the distributors posting pictures online using the hashtag #ppweek and #promoteyourbrand and here is our very own, Ellie perched on a lectern in our office...

The campaign is aimed at promoting the industry but also supporting a worthwhile cause, Pancreatic Cancer UK. Text BPMA50 £3 to make a donation or visit and donate through the just giving page.
