Trophex 2012

Trophex is the exhibition for the trophy, awards and personalisation industry and attracts many companies who exhibit every year as well as many new ones. The organisers of the event state it is an essential show for the industry and the perfect exhibition for exhibitors to unveil new technologies and launch new catalogues.

Visitors to the show can gain a valuable insight into exactly what is available on the market, allowing them to make a much more informed decision about which companies and people they should deal with.  Visitors can discuss queries face-to-face allowing them to take home valuable information and use it in their business.

The industry is vast and Trophex represents every aspect of it including trophies, engraving - machines and materials, glass and crystal, sublimation, photo imaging, badges, pins, giftware, signage, lasers, decals, embroidery, gifts, promotional merchandise and many more profit making lines.

Numerous exhibitors have already signed up for the 2012 event including Mimaki, Roland DG and Hybrid Services.  The event takes place on Sunday 15th January and Monday 16th January 2012 – the Sunday opening is a great opportunity for business owners to visit.
