Trophex 2014 opens its doors next month

Trophex is fast approaching, opening to the public on Sunday 19th and Monday 20th January 2014. If you work in the trophy, awards or personalisation industry it is the only show to attend and a great way to start the year. Pick up the newly launched 2014 catalogues, see new trends for the coming season, find new suppliers, talk to people face-to-face, watch live demonstrations, learn about new products and look for new ideas and opportunities to stay one step ahead of your competitors in 2014.

The 2014 exhibition promises to be even bigger and better than before as the show includes some major new innovations designed to enhance the visitor experience. These include the Industry Awareness Zone and the Knowledge Centre. A series of seminars will take place over the course of the exhibition at the Industry Awareness Zone, offering visitors technical information and advice on a variety of subjects related to the industry. At the Knowledge Centre experts will be present from within the industry to give visitors advice, support, answer questions and solve problems.
