The Big Promo Gift Show – An Update

So it’s only 20 days to go until The Big Promo Gift Show at The Royal Armouries in Leeds. We’re looking forward to it here at LSi – it’s our big day where we can see all of you and show you some of the exciting new promotional products that are on the market.

We’ve had a great response with more registered attendees at this stage than for any of our previous shows. The seminars are being booked out fast and with only 66 places for each one you’ll need to register and put your name down soon if you want to be guaranteed a seat. Just to let you know, here’s how many seats are remaining at each one:

  • The Power Of The Medium – Looking Beyond The Product – 33
  • Driving Measurement With Every Marketing Pound – 9
  • Case Histories That Have Generated Huge Returns – 6
  • Maximizing Your Relationship with Your Account Executive – 50
  • The Power Of The Medium – Looking Beyond The Product (2) – 57

We’ve also got 59 penalty takers signed up for the Peter Shilton penalty competition. It’s likely that I’ll be running that on the day so if you’ve signed up or are going to, it will be lovely to meet you (my tip: put the ball hard and low into the left hand side netting with your instep – you can’t lose!).

After the penalty competition we’ve got a Guinness World Record attempt from the world champion freestyle footballer, John Farnworth. You can find out more about him and get a sneaky peek at his skills on our special guests page.

We’ll continue keeping you up to date on our twitter page and The Big Promo Gift Show website.

See you at the show!

Brand New Products On The Website

I’ve just put 10 new promotional products on the website and there’s a few that stand out for me.

Pocket Basic Notebook

The pocket basic notebook with pen is a fantastic product. Essentially, it’s a pad with a hole in it where you can keep your pen. The best thing about this is that you can match the branding on the pad to the pen giving a great coordinated feel to your promotion – and you should never lose your pen!

Non Slip Mobile Phone Holder

The non-slip phone holder is a bit of a star as well. You can literally put it on a flat wall and things will still stick to it like glue. It’s got a great branding area and will last for years. It’s the kind of thing people will show to their friends, the sticking qualities are that impressive.

They are my two favourites. This isn’t to say that the others aren’t any good, they’re great. They were chosen by our sales team from an array of hundreds of different products and were the ones that got the biggest response from our customers.


In case you haven’t seen them yet, there’s also a load of new promotional World Cup products on the site as well including footballs, face paint and the soon to be ubiquitous vuvuzelas. If you don’t know what they are yet, you soon will! I watched a fair amount of the Confederations Cup, held in South Africa a year or so ago, on TV and the noise of the vuvuzela was clear to hear. They have a central part in South African football culture, much like the Samba drums in Brazil, so if you want to be a part of the crowd, you’ll need one!

Another ‘in case you haven’t seen’ is that our Big Promo Gift Show website has been launched. The show itself is being held on 26th May and is based on a World Cup theme. We’ll be joined by Nobby Stiles and Peter Shilton, we’ll have seminars from Cliff Quicksell – one of the U.S’s most respected speakers in the promotional merchandise industry – and over 10,000 products on display from the old favourites to the new and innovative.

A quick Twitter account list now. If you’re on Twitter, why not follow us? We’re on as a company @promo_merch, have a dedicated Promo Gift Show account @lsibigshow, the boss, Lloyd, is on there @lloydsimpson and I’m on there @scottthewebdes. We’d love to hear from you.
