ETO Show to return in 2019 with new venue and new slot

Posted: July 10, 2018

The ETO Show is returning to the industry calendar in 2019, at a new venue and in March rather than its previous summer slot. The return of the UK’s only dedicated adult B2B exhibition was revealed at ETO’s Notworking Event in Blackpool on July 5th, and the response was overwhelmingly positive – with a number of stands being snapped up on the night.

“I have been genuinely delighted with the reaction we received,” said ETO Show organiser Jonathan Kirk. “The ETO Show has been an important fixture in the industry calendar since 2005 and it has clearly been missed since 2016.”

The 2019 ETO Show will take place on Sunday March 10th and Monday March 11th at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, which is just 12 miles from the NEC, the show’s previous home.

“We’ve explored many possibilities over the last 18 months,” said Kirk, “and the Ricoh Arena is not only a fabulous location but it also allows us to stay in the midlands, the centre of the country, and close to all major road links.”

In an effort to keep costs down for exhibitors, there will be just four pre-built stand sizes available, ranging in price from under £500 and reaching £3,950 for the largest. “We are acutely aware that the show has to deliver value for money to exhibitors,” said Kirk, “and pre-built stands will mean they no longer have to employ a team of fitters to construct their own individual stands.”
