EXHIBITION Centre Liverpool has confirmed a series of consumer and trade shows, including multi-year deals. Pulse Live, The Manufacturer Live, SIBA BeerX, INPAS – Inflatables Expo and Trade Show – and Federation of Petroleum Suppliers (FPS) are among multi-year trade shows. FPS has extended its existing three year deal confirming additional years 2019 and 2020 at the waterfront venue. After a successful inaugural year, Nursery World North will be returning in 2018 and 2019. Other returning trade shows include Wound Expo, Primary Care Nursing, Nursing Recruitment Fair and Today’s Trade Show. INPAS -– which is the UK’s largest inflatables and play industry exhibition – will take place in January 2018 and 2019. It will feature bouncy castles, inflatable slides and equipment and rodeo bulls as well as providing networking opportunities for leading manufacturers, suppliers and service providers. Peter Grand, from INPAS, said: “This will be the largest ever event we have held to date and we are excited about how we can transform the exhibition halls as they provide such a versatile space. We are confident that they will look spectacular.” In addition, Exhibition Centre Liverpool has successfully confirmed returning public shows Digital Splash, The Big Bang Fair North West, Can You Dance? and Allergy and Free From Show. For horror fans, the inaugural Liverpool Horror Con will welcome visitors in October while Fantasy Flight National Championships, River Mersey Christmas Market and National Dog Mania Liverpool are among forthcoming consumer exhibitions. Exhibition Centre Liverpool is part of the ACC Liverpool campus which also includes BT Convention Centre and Echo Arena. Kerrin MacPhie, ACC Liverpool director of conference and exhibition sales, said: “As we head towards the second anniversary of Exhibition Centre Liverpool, we are pleased that many event organisers are booking multi-year deals and many are reconfirming for future years. This highlights the confidence our clients have in the service we provide and the events’ ongoing success. “Our latest raft of new events reflect the diversity of public and trade exhibitions we host at Exhibition Centre Liverpool.” In July, British Style Collective, presented by The Clothes Show, took over the city for a three-day fashion festival which featured shopping halls in Exhibition Centre Liverpool. The exhibition centre will be transformed into a ‘Christmas Party World’ in December for a series of Christmas parties organised by Christmas party planners, Vivid Experience.
