11.05.2016 08:12 Uhr Industry

Sourcing City Marketplace takes place in Farnborough, UK on 21st and 22nd September 2016. In 2015 this industry leading networking event was unanimously acclaimed as the best yet by VIP visitors and suppliers alike. The combination of pre-booked appointments and meetings during the Runaround Sessions ensured that over 2000 focused conversations took place.

David Kershner of Impression Europe said; "We saw 35 companies over the 2 days and used the sessions to either review activity and sales YTD with key accounts or explore sales and growth potential with others. A pre-requisite for me in any working day is utilising my time productively with an emphasis on activity that will grow sales for both our customers and ourselves. The two days were perfect in this respect. The show is very well organised and a credit to everybody at Sourcing City who I know work extremely hard to make it so special."

Visiting VIP, Jamie Marshall owner of Premier Print & Promotions said; "20 great meetings, lovely hotel, fabulous evening all with great characters/entrepreneurs from our fantastic industry, Sourcing City have again provided a great event, tell me another way you can discuss so much business with so many different partners in such a short space of time."

Around 100 suppliers meet with VIP guests for with conversations focussed on how they could do business with each other. To ensure everyone had the ultimate experience, all food and drinks are free, from breakfast to lunch and afternoon cakes, for those too busy to leave their pods a regular 'Roving Tea Trolley' brings drinks and snacks.

Sourcing City Marketplace is now established and universally acclaimed as the industry's premier VIP Networking Event. The two day trade event is exclusively for individually invited promotional merchandise industry VIP's from professional distributors with a turnover in excess of £250k. Suppliers were able to meet with leading industry distributors who had a combined turnover in excess of £300m, knowing that everyone in the hall was a serious buyer of promotional merchandise.

Traditional exhibitions tend to focus purely on product, and some would consider that conversations have become repetitive for experienced exhibitors & visitors alike. Suppliers have a more important story to be told, as every supplier has services & processes that can help a distributor be more efficient & profitable, ...but the distributors do not always know. The concept at SCM is that suppliers focus their conversations on a lot more than the small range of key products they have with them.

At the end of Day One is the VIP Networking Dinner, where over 200 people from the industry's largest distributors and host suppliers enjoy an evening with another opportunity to meet and network with new people, and to enhance relationships with people that they already know.

Sourcing City said that all PSI Members would be welcome at the sixth SC Marketplace delivers even more in September 2016 at FIVE in Farnborough. For further details please contact: Liz Young,, Telephone: + 44 1252 701034.
