ETO Show 2017 dates confirmed

Posted: November 16, 2016

The 2017 ETO Show will take place on Sunday the 25th and Monday the 26th of June. It will once again be held at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in the Midlands although it will be in Hall 11 this time, due to the Pavilion being unavailable throughout 2017. The ETO Show weekend will also feature one of the social highlights of the year, the 13th annual ETO Awards Dinner, in which excellence in every link in the supply chain is recognised.

The majority of the industry’s leading names are expected to exhibit at the 2017 ETO Show and retailers visiting the free-to-attend event will be able get a first look at new launches, take advantage of special show-only deals, and get to know existing and new suppliers: this latter aspect of the show is particularly important, as recent research by the Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR) has revealed that face-to-face business meetings contribute £193 billion to the UK economy every year. The Measuring Face Value report – published in partnership with hotel chain Premier Inn and downloadable from here – concludes: “Far from being replaced by email or video or teleconferencing, this research shows that securing face time with clients and customers has never been more important, across sector, size and region. In short, it’s worth the effort and pays dividends in a number of ways.”
