Gravotech joins Trophex 2023 alongside Mr Fix It Wholesale Gravotech and Mr Fix It Wholesale understand thyat trade shows are a valuable resource to promote your company to a wider target audience where you benefit from meeting prospective customers face-to-face at one venue, saving you time and money. The human brain is wired for connection and appreciation. To build relationships and close deals, it is essential to understand what makes each person tick. Businesses need to take into account that face-to-face sales are often the first time a customer gets acquainted with your brand, products, and services. A recent report from Stellar Global discovered that 85% of customers would be encouraged to buy a product after a product demonstration, while 73% want a product demonstration to give them an understanding of how that product works. These findings highlight the importance of taking the time to demonstrate your product, educate prospective customers about its advantages and answer any questions they have. Using face-to-face meetings to show how your product helps them solve their problems, wants and desires is therefore crucial in the sales environment. All in all, success in B2B sales means using all the methods available to you and using them well. Technology should, of course, be used when it is sensible to do so, but the

value of face-to-face interaction can never be understated. At a time when the world is opening up again, embracing in-person meetings is sure to yield success. Trade shows are a valuable resource to promote your company to a wider target audience where you benefit from meeting prospective customers face-to-face at one venue, saving you time and money. Trophex is a major well established trade event for the Trophy, Engraving, Awards, Medals and Personalisation industry. The aim of the next show in 2023 is to re-connect the industry, creating a space where you can network, build new business relationships, and catch up with current customers and suppliers personally. With this in mind Trophex is returning to its all-time preferred venue, The National Conference Centre and Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham, and will be held on Sunday 22nd and Monday 23rd January 2023. Join an industry trusted show, incorporating over thirty years of experience, with the infrastructure to target prospective new business, from a wider audience than ever before, on your behalf.

NEW LOW-COST FORMAT TO EXHIBIT Take advantage of a revised low-cost pricing structure to put yourself in front of prospective customers in a well-known fit for purpose venue. Exhibitors can show their full range at the right price on the right days at the right venue.

GREAT TRANSPORT LINKS & PARKING The National Conference Centre and Motorcycle Museum is ideally located, in the heart of the Midlands on Junction 6 of the M42 and only 5 minutes from Birmingham International railway station and airport, travel could not be easier. Combine this with over 1000 free parking spaces and 4 electric charging points.

MARKETING CAMPAIGN DIRECT TO RETAILERS AND OTHER CAREFULLY SELECTED PROSPECTIVE CUSTOMERS The shows media partner TEN Magazine, the only magazine in the UK for the industry, and show organisers Hill Media Ltd, have a proven track record and the infrastructure to bring visitors to the show.

Five Benefits of Having Participation Trophies in Children’s Sports Whether it’s ‘Man of the Match’, Sports Day or simply taking part in the school rounders competition – sport is an integral part of any child’s life whilst at school. But that doesn’t necessarily mean every child is a natural athlete.

It removes the feeling of being isolated

We all remember those days at school, being forced to run cross country in the rain. Well, imagine how things might have been different if there had been a sports day medal, trophy or award waiting at the end for you?

It’s these mental health benefits in particular that can make a lasting psychological impression later down the line.

Whilst the idea of “participation trophies” is a controversial one, today we’re sharing five benefits of awarding the act of simply taking part in sports that you may not have otherwise considered.

If physical activity isn’t your forte, it can be all too easy to throw in the towel, but encouraging effort, applauding perseverance and rewarding hard work are incredibly valuable for later on in life.

reward their efforts, but can work as a motivator to keep practising and improving.

They boost confidence

Whether it’s cross country medals to sports day trophies, EFX off the shelf awards are the perfect solution! Available at short notice, but still customisable to your school and easy to quickly personalise, they are a fantastic option for this type of event.

Participation trophies encourage physical activity If something isn’t your thing, the chances are you will do your best to avoid it at all costs. This is the same for kids in school, where it is often deemed more appealing to sit along the side-lines and watch than to participate. But, instead of worrying about being picked last or being self-conscious about fitness levels, taking part in a sporting activity with the knowledge that you will be rewarded with a physical token of achievement at the end, can be all the encouragement that’s needed.

School can be a tough time for our children and sports, in particular, can often marginalise kids. But teamwork with one set goal of winning an award can help to build positive relationships, form friendships and even boost self-esteem.

They teach the value of hard work and effort

Confidence is a huge barrier for many kids when it comes to taking part in physical activity. It can be the thing stopping them from wanting to even try. Participation awards not only give children something to strive for, but they also offer a tangible result for getting up and having a go.

They act as positive motivators Whether it’s sports or something else, children will fast lose interest if they feel they’re not progressing and never winning. The gift of a personalised trophy can not only

The Power of Embroidery It seems that embroidery is on trend for 2022. At Amaya in recent months they have seen record sales of embroidery machines both to existing embroiderers, and to new start-up accounts.

M&S or Boden – they are all featuring highly detailed embroidered patterns for this season, and it doesn’t stop with female fashion. It’s there in mens, childrenswear and home accessories as well.

Aside of the pandemic, something none of us were expecting or have experienced before, it is fair to say that trends and fashions repeat themselves. Take the t-shirt shape for example, we saw the oversized baggy t-shirt’s everywhere back in the 80s and having come through the fitted styles in recent years, the comfort fit is back again but just under a different name.

The fashion recognition of this decoration method drives demand across the board and creates an enhanced buoyancy in the field that we are all experienced in, garment decoration.

So, is it the same with embroidery? Is the demand for it cyclical and affected by fashion or is it here to stay and consistently grow over the years?

The most established market sectors are probably workwear and schoolwear. Embroidery is traditionally seen as higher quality, more durable, more washable, and simply better, and this will take a lot to beat. As the workwear market grows exponentially,

I’d say the latter. However you shop, online or at your local shopping centre, embroidery and application detail in women’s fashion is everywhere for 2022 – Zara, Mango,

with more and more businesses and sectors opting for uniform, naturally the demand for embroidered decoration will continue to grow.

Are you confused about thinking of which DTG printer to buy? I should imagine that many of you have visited a trade show or two when considering going into the business of Direct to Garment printing. You will have seen many different makes and sizes, with prices ranging from around £7,500 up to over £450,000. So, which is the correct fit for you and your company? Pricing Pricing at the show seemed a bit erratic, some dealers dropped their prices significantly, by has much as 35% and others by the normal show discounts of between 7.5% and 10%. I would personally be aware of suppliers discounting by 35%. How can they afford to do this, I ask myself? Either they are about to launch a new printer, or their printers were massively overpriced in the first place. The other thing to consider is if you had purchased a printer at the normal price, your asset is now worth more than 35% less. Suppliers need to make a reasonable margin so they can exist and offer you the kind of support you would expect.

Print area Decide what printing area you think you will require and what market you are going to sell into. Printing areas range from 32x45cm through 41x60cm up 42x95cm. You can also find multiple platen configurations for higher productions but obviously the pricing for these would be higher. I would always go for something in the middle, like 41x60cm so you have the flexibility to print full size on a T shirt, remember, you can always print smaller than this. If you know that around 32x45cm will satisfy your customers, then you will save yourself at least £3,000 in equipment cost. The market you are selling into will define what maximum size printer you require.

Modular Some printers are modular, which means you can have more than one printer connected to one PC and RIP software. This could be an alternative to paying out for one larger and more expensive one, buy three or four

around the £10,000 mark each. This is a big advantage if your more expensive printer breaks down, if you had modular ones only one would be out of action.

Big mistake One big mistake when buying a DTG printer is not to check the ink and maintenance costs. The cost of inks on printers with sealed cartridges is nearly double the cost of re-fillable cartridges. These suppliers will try and hide this from you or tell you that sealed cartridges are a must. If you are using your printer every day, the best buy would be a printer with a pressurised ink system and re-fillable cartridges. If you use the printer one or two days a week then sealed cartridges are preferable. Look carefully at the warranty conditions of DTG printers, some systems have to be flushed out around every month and have certain parts changed to comply with its warranty. Flushing a system out and changing parts could cost you another £150-£200 a month. Add this to higher ink costs and you have more or less doubled the monthly cost of the printer. So do your homework and choose wisely.

hour on dark garments and double that amount on whites. This is obviously dependant on the size of print. There are more expensive printers out there, ranging from £60,000 to £500,000 that will give very high production figures, these are more suited to companies requiring around 100 prints per hour.

Support Whatever level of printer you decide on, the most important question to the supplier is, what sort of support do you offer. The problem with this question is that all suppliers will say they offer superb support. So, I am afraid it is up to you to find out for yourself. There are several ways of doing this, you could ask your supplier for referrals or look on forums (make sure they are recent entries and relate to the UK). Ask how long they have been selling and supporting DTG equipment, how many engineers they have on the road, are they their own personnel or freelance, have the engineers been factory trained.

Mint Installs talk to us about their preferred cutter plotter supplier Graphtec GB In a recent interview with Mint Installs we spoke to Max Smith-Halvorsen (Marketing & Business Manager) about Mint Installs and their preferred cutter plotter supplier Graphtec GB. Based in Potters Bar, Hertfordshire and employing 5 permanent and 2 freelancers, Mint Installs is a PPF (Paint Protection Film) company for the automotive industry (primarily for cars and motor bikes) and is proud to be an Xpel, Gtechniq and Carpro accredited business. The company

was recently established by Paul Slade (Director) and his business partner, David Shoubridge (Senior Installer) in May 2021 and is quickly establishing itself as one of the leading PPF Installation businesses in the UK. Whilst specialising in Paint Protection Film and Detailing, they also offer a selection of other services including detailing, ceramic coatings, machine polishing, wrapping and wheel refurbishment. “PPF is a process that is designed to provide you with the peace of mind that you need on the open road, keeping your vehicle’s surfaces safe from gravel, oils, bug acids, bird droppings as well as stopping paint chips before they start. PPF is hydrophobic and therefore easily cleaned - even jet washable. We are one of the few

companies that ensure all possible edges are wrapped, making the film virtually invisible. Lifting and delamination are a thing of the past with Xpel film. Xpel’s Edge Seal Technology ensures film stays stuck and keeps surfaces protected from contaminants. PPF produces a finish where the cars look better than when they came out of the show room”. Max explained. The Xpel system called DAP (Design Access Programme), provides the film and patterns for almost all makes and models of cars. These are cut out using the Graphtec FC9000 cutting plotter “in our opinion the industry standard for this type of work. The quality of the cuts are second to none and provides a sharp, accurate pattern cut for the car panels, - especially important for our wrap all edges’ approach” said Max. The FC9000 provides one of the highest performance capabilities currently available. This is due to the addition of productionenhancing features and comes as standard with a new barcode reader for continuous cut capabilities. Available in four different sizes the 75, 100, 140 and 160cm models that cut material widths of 762, 1,067, 1,372 and 1,626mm respectively. With a

maximum cutting speed of 1,485mm/ sec and a cutting force of 600gf (5.88N), the FC9000 is considered to have reached a new level for high-end cutting, involving a much wider range of sign and graphics and digital printing media in varying thicknesses. The FC9000 has an optional media take-up spool that will increase the efficiency of roll-to-roll work undertaken by digital print specialists and the new auto panelling function which prevents skewing of longer lengths of material to be cut by automatically splitting the job into smaller sections for guaranteed precise sequential cutting. The FC9000 is supplied with the latest Version 8 of Graphtec’s proprietary ARMS (Advanced Registration Mark Sensing) system for radically enhanced media tracking and cutting accuracy. It is also supplied as standard with Graphtec Pro Studio or optional Pro Studio Plus and Cutting Master 4 design and production software, with the latter available as a plug-in option for integration with other popular software programs such as Adobe Illustrator and CorelDRAW. The machine also meets all relevant CE safety standards and comes with a three-year performance warranty and starts at £3,695.00 – £9,245.00.

When asked what sets your company apart from the competition? Max explained “We strive for customer service and protection hence the name. We keep the customer up-to-date with the process via a WhatsApp group so they can see the progress of their vehicle by sending them images. It’s the personal touch that counts. We simply achieve this by ensuring that no car leaves our workshop without looking perfect - and we mean perfect. We expect the same from our suppliers and with Graphtec, the service we have received has been second to none. The peace of mind knowing that there is

technical support at all times is invaluable to any production company and I certainly wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them”.

TROPHEX UK 2023 & EURO TROPHEX 2023

10 great reasons to exhibit at Trophex 2023 & Euro Trophex 2023 If your business is attracting new customers from advertising and word of mouth, it can be very tempting to write trade shows off as something that you don’t need to do to attract new customers. But trade shows can be one of the most rewarding forms of marketing when approached with the right strategy. Trade show veterans will attest to the fact that the ROI (return on investment) achieved from a successful trade show is often impossible to match in comparison to other forms of marketing. So before you write off trade shows as secondary to your current marketing tactics, it pays to learn about their benefits. Here are ten reasons which explain why trade shows should be at the top of your list.

1. Meet and connect with prospective customers One of the greatest advantages of exhibiting at a trade show is that it allows you to meet and connect with prospective customers in person instead of communicating with them over the phone. Research has shown that in-person meetings are 34 times more successful than those made via email or by phone. When meeting in person, you become someone that they know, recognise, and want to connect with. Another advantage is the trade show host uses their database to invite prospective customers to the event, using various marketing tools on your behalf to get footfall through the door. Where else can you meet

hundreds of prospective business opportunities all under one roof?

exhibitors are doing, this helps to keep you up to date with new technologies, techniques, products and industry trends.

2. Strengthen your bond with existing customers Just like trade shows give you the opportunity to better connect with prospective customers, exhibiting at a trade show also allows you to meet your existing customers face-to-face. While most of today’s business is conducted over email or phone, face-to-face meetings are undeniably a fantastic way to do business. Trade shows are often a place for customers to approach you with their long term plans and big orders – orders that can be incredibly lucrative for you as an exhibitor. Utilising your attendance to plan meetings at the show will save you valuable time and money, rather than trying to see each in turn at their place of business.

3. Learn about new developments in your industry When your business attends an industry event, it puts you at the centre of the action. Trade shows are a place for businesses to announce and display their latest innovations and developments. In a competitive industry, would you rather be aware of your competitors or out of the loop? Exhibiting at a trade show doesn’t just give you the opportunity to make new sales and connect with existing customers, it gives you the chance to look at cutting edge developments in your industry and the opportunities they also create for you. When you are at the show take a few hours out of your stand and see what other

4. Meet new companies that can help your business Your attendance gives you the chance to network with both prospective customers and prospective vendors. This makes a trade show more than just an opportunity to expand your distribution, but a chance to expand your supply chain. While your sales and marketing team focus on connecting with prospects to make new sales, your Purchasing Manager can connect with new vendors and contractors that can help your business grow. This makes a trade show a two-sided opportunity for your business – to expand sales, and to expand supply chains.

5. Close deals with new customers during the show There are few situations more tense than the average outbound sales call. From the endless objections of the prospective customer, to the stress of losing a valuable sale, it’s natural to face rejection and nervousness as a salesperson. At a trade show, however, the atmosphere is different. Almost half of trade show attendees make purchases at trade shows. A staggering 91 percent of all trade show attendees claim that shows are ‘extremely useful’ to their product and service sourcing efforts. When you speak to a Purchasing Manager or Director on the phone, you’re often dealing with someone that’s already juggling a variety of obligations and deals in their mind.

TROPHIES ENGRAVING AWARDS MEDALS PERSONALISATION

JANUARY 22nd & 23rd 2023 - BIRMINGHAM, UK As such, they’re understandably disinterested. At a trade show, you’re dealing with prospective customers that have made the journey to fulfil a requirement they currently have. Unlike traditional outbound marketing, in which rejection is the norm, trade shows are one of the few environments in which your sales team benefits from an audience of prospective customers that are genuinely interested in buying your products and services.

6. Strengthen or establish your brand Trade shows are one of the few environments where you have the same amount of access to prospective customers as your larger competitors do. This makes them a valuable opportunity not just for direct sales and marketing, but for strengthening your brand and positioning your business as a leader in its industry. From free giveaways to trade show displays, there’s no better opportunity to give your brand a sizeable boost than a trade show. If you create an exhibition stand that attracts the right type of attention, a single exhibition can be all it takes to change your brand from up-andcomer to an established industry leader.

7. Learn what your competitors are doing right In the world of business, it pays to keep your customers close and your competitors closer. Exhibiting at a trade show allows you to observe what your competitors are doing right and apply their tactics to your own business. Is there a particular competitor in your industry that seems to be growing at a rapid

OCTOBER 20th & 21st 2023 - BARCELONA, SPAIN

pace? While your sales team uses the trade show as an opportunity to meet existing customers and connect with prospective ones, spend a moment looking at the other exhibitors to see what they’re doing differently from you. Great businesses are aware of their competitors, and trade shows are one of the best opportunities to connect with competitors and understand their sales strategy, their pricing, and the reasons for their success.

8. Rapidly expand your database of sales leads While skimming through the phone book might give you thousands of unqualified phone numbers, nothing gives you qualified leads quite like a trade show. While cold calling and online marketing might not have the same initial expense as a trade show, there’s no greater way to fill your contact book with prospects than a successful trade show effort in a much shorter time frame.

9. Speak directly to your target market Email surveys are a fantastic way to learn more about what your customers want and don’t want. Unfortunately, their low response rate makes them useful only to businesses with a large enough email list to tolerate very few responses. Trade shows allow you to solicit a huge amount of feedback by talking directly to visitors that have been invited to attend from various avenues within your industry. You can then use this valuable information after the show to help your business expand and improve.

twitter / facebook / instagram: @trophexlive

A great way to get useful feedback and valuable sales leads at the same time is by conducting a short survey on your exhibition stand, and rewarding participants with vouchers or gifts from your business. Where else but a trade show can you generate new leads and valuable feedback at the same time?

10. Optimise your sales and lead generation strategy Trade shows are an excellent opportunity to expose your sales team to hundreds of different prospects in a short period of time. A perfect opportunity to test new sales tricks and marketing strategies in a very responsive environment. If you want to test and optimise your lead generation strategy, you’ll find no better place than a trade show. Try several different sales pitches on prospects and you’ll quickly learn which ones work and which ones don’t, allowing you to perfect your sales strategies in just a few days. You can then use these honed skills when out on the road or at future trade events. The next Trophex is to take place on 22nd & 23rd January 2023 at The National Conference Centre in Birmingham. Reservations are already being taken. The next Euro Trophex is taking place on 20th & 21st October 2023 in Barcelona, Spain. If you are interested in exhibiting at either show, please call +44 (0) 1442 826826 to discuss your requirements. Or you can send an email to Nigel Bean - nigelbean1@aol.com, Jane Soones - janesoones@hillmedia.com, Colin Gallimore - colingallimore@hillmedia.com.
