On Wednesday 8th September, USB2U exhibited at their first trade show since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Merchandise World 2021 was hosted at The Marshall Arena, Milton Keynes which is just on our doorstep in the next county. Promotional merchandise experts travelled far and wide to connect with fellow industry colleagues and it certainly felt like the event and the sector itself was buzzing again after a challenging 18 months.
The Merchandise World event team worked tirelessly to ensure that the event ran smoothly and in accordance with government guidelines on business event safety. Exhibitors and attendees alike were invited to wear face coverings, keep their distance and sanitize products and shared areas after use. The event felt safe and well organised and team USB2U were happy to be back exhibiting again alongside a great group of people.
Here at USB2U we started offering PPE at the start of the pandemic, and have continued to supply face masks and branded hand sanitiser to businesses across the UK ever since. Nat and Andy who manned our stand wore transparent face shields, and hand sanitiser bottles with a handy carabiner clip (branded with the USB2U logo of course) were handed out to visitors at the stand.
Merchandise World was a great opportunity to give our loyal trade customers an early preview of our new range of environmentally friendly tech merchandise which we will be launching this Autumn/Winter. From power banks to wireless chargers, packaging to USB sticks, our eco friendly tech gifts were highly sought after and went down a storm. We can’t wait to see which products prove to be the most popular with their clients. Watch this space for more information!
