UK - With more than 100 new exhibitors, a number of product launches and a 25 per cent increase in visitor numbers year on year, Newbury Showground was ‘abuzz with all things event related’ when The Showman’s Show 2022 headed there from 19 – 20 October.
Visitors to the show this year included End of The Road Festival, IMG, Royal International Air Tattoo, Festival Republic, Wimbledon, Goodwood Motorsports, London Marathon, EnTEEtainment, Live Nation and VIP Nation, Formula E, National Eisteddfod of Wales and Cheltenham Festivals.
Event director Jeremy Lance comments, “We knew in the lead up to The Showman’s Show 2022 that there was a real desire for the industry to come together. For many it was important to discuss the events of the summer; the challenges faced within the supply chain, rising costs, staff shortages etc. but also to look forward and begin putting plans in place for 2023.”
This viewpoint is supported by many of the show exhibitors. Ozan Pakyz of Simpliwifi said: “We had an absolute corker of a show with over 250 stand visits and we have secured a number of deals already directly as a result of the show.”
“What a huge success it was showcasing our products at The Showman’s Show. Our newest addition, The Nest drew quite the crowd,” adds Lauren Halstead of Zoo Events
Shaun Pearce of Pearce Hire was impressed with the focus on sustainability at The Showman’s Show 2022, saying: “There's no denying that this year's event put sustainability where it should be; at the forefront. It's clear that the mindset of the industry is changing. It was a huge pleasure to join a panel of like-minded industry specialists at the Sustainable Event Summit to share the challenges faced and the significant innovations we're creating to overcome them. This is definitely a show to be remembered!”
Johnny Lance, event director notes, “This year’s show had all the ingredients that you need for a successful trade show that understands and serves its sector. There was a healthy balance of new and previous exhibitors, industry staples and innovations and some really good content in the form of the Sustainable Event Summit which shone a light on our environmental impact and what we can do to minimise it.
“Playing host to the Sustainable Event Summit is important to us, as a responsible organiser, and to the wider industry so we’re always very happy to lend our support.”
