On the 28th May 2015 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Leeds the first ever Yorkshire Merchandise Show was hosted by Fluid Branding.

Feedback on the event has been overwhelmingly positive, so much so that there are plans to repeat the event again next year.

Attendees were treated to free goodie bags and informative seminars presented by Gordon Glenister (Director General of the British Promotional Merchandise Association) based on creative ideas and demonstrating how promotional products can deliver great ROI. Alongside the seminars there was a diverse product selection for guests to peruse, with account managers on hand to offer advice and guidance.

Fluid Branding's Jemma Kent, Amy Martin, Matt Franks, Miles Lovegrove, James Ingleby and Kyle Scott were at the show, helping attendees realise their promotional potential

"All the staff were very polite and absolutely lovely. Products never look as good in the photos online, they always look low quality. However, after attending Fluid's event, we saw that all of their products were of a very high quality, not only that but they had such a selection. To say that it was Fluid's first event it was amazing and I was very impressed with them. I would honestly say that it was a job well done from everyone there, they created an amazing event that I highly recommend that any business should attend, with high quality products that anyone would love to receive" - commented visitor Olivia Kler of Integrity FT.

Fluid's Leeds based Account Director Kyle Scott adds "We're delighted that the Show was such a success, I'd like to thank everyone who attended and our supplier partners for supporting us, we look forward to doing it all again next year."
