Response to ETO Show return has ‘exceeded all expectations’

Posted: October 11, 2018

The return of the ETO Show to the industry calendar has been warmly welcomed by exhibitors, and show organiser Jonathan Kirk has confirmed that space at the event – which will take place on Sunday March 10th and Monday March 11th at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry – is now almost sold out.

“The response we have received from the industry has exceeded all our expectations,” said Kirk. “This demonstrates that the UK still needs a dedicated adult B2B event of its own. The ETO Show has been an important fixture in the industry calendar since 2005 and the overwhelmingly positive reaction to its return indicates it has clearly been missed.”

The most recent ETO Show was staged at the NEC in 2016. Issues surrounding the venue, and concerns regarding the impact of Brexit, resulted in the cancellation of the 2017 incarnation.

“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. It is just 12 miles from the NEC, the show’s previous home.”

More details about the revamped 2019 ETO Show will be revealed over the coming months. If you are interested in exhibiting at the event please contact Jonathan Kirk via To register for your free entrance badge visit
