Sourcing City Marketplace

Acclaimed Industry VIP Networking Event

Conversation Theme: 'Let's Do Business'.

Sourcing City Marketplace is an established and universally acclaimed industry VIP Networking Event. The two day trade event is exclusively for invited VIP’s from professional promotional merchandise distributor companies with over £250k turnover. The attendees have combined sales in excess of £300 million.

To enable effective meetings and maximum discovery, the days are ‘Appointment based’ together with pre-set 'Runaround Sessions' where over 2,000 focused conversations take place.

SC Marketplace in Action!

Traditional exhibitions tend to focus purely on product, and some would consider that conversations have become repetitive for experienced exhibitors & visitors alike. Suppliers have an important story to be told, so, as well as presenting new products and top selling lines, they explain 'all' of the other reasons why distributors should do business with them. Every supplier has services & processes that can help a distributor be more efficient & profitable, ...but the distributors do not always know!

The environment is relaxed, and conversations are focussed on added value services, the development & review of individual trading partnership plans, late season new products and top selling lines.

All attending guests enjoy Free Pre-Show Speakers, Free Breakfast, Free Lunch & Drinks, Free Roving Tea Trolley, Free Pick’n’Mix Sweets, Free WiFi, Free Parking, Hotel Vouchers, Travel Vouchers & Free Transfers.

VIP's from Over £1m Distributor companies are also invited to the "Networking Dinner", where the evening provides further opportunities to meet & build relationships with suppliers and fellow VIP's.

Sourcing City Marketplace

...creates a new way of doing business. an environment in which you can have professional conversations by appointment to discover everything a supplier offers & how it can make your business more efficient & profitable.

...provides professional learning for the industry through pre-show speaker sessions

Suppliers have so much more to offer other than just products, particularly services & processes that can help a distributor be more efficient & profitable. The problem is the distributors do not always know, that is where SC Marketplace come in.
