EAG 2018: Organiser reports sharp increase in exhibitors
Raft of new signings for January event
Next month’s combined EAG and VAE Show at ExCeL will play host to significant number of first time exhibitors, according to organiser, Swan Events.
Organiser Karen Cooke said she has seen a sharp increasing in exhibitor numbers for the 2018 event, the ninth in the show’s history.
“The level of interest from potential exhibitors has increased dramatically; we’ve already signed-up 11 first-time exhibitors and we’re in discussions with several more,” revealed Cooke.
New signings include: Cogan Kiddie Rides, Fun Share Game, Game Fun, Grupo Famai, Home Leisure Direct, Industrias Lorenzo, Nayax, Popppy UK, Sano UK, TAB Austria and VR Acquisitions.
“We’re particularly pleased that more than half of our new exhibitors are from overseas , hailing from as far away as China and the USA. They will be showcasing products from a wide range of categories, including health and safety equipment, components, F&B, software and systems as well as rides and amusement products. There is little doubt that the show is now appealing to the wider leisure community,” continued Cooke.
Popppy UK is the recently started UK division of a German popcorn vending specialist. The company’s Nikolaus Plange is clearly enthusiastic about attending EAG International & VAE, and said: “We have a unique popcorn which is both fat free and suitable for vegans. We’re looking forward to presenting our vending proposition to visitors to the show.”
Guangzhou-based games developer and manufacturer Funshare Game will also be premiering at the show. The company has revealed that it’s hoping to find a strong UK or European distributor to develop and expand its presence on the continent.
SANO UK is a supplier of lifting and moving equipment and also mobility products. Managing director Peter Simmons said that the company will be showing a range of compact high capacity load carriers, designed to increase productivity and enhance safety in a wide range of environments.
