Mark the date in your diary and underline it in giant capital letters. We are delighted to announce the WASTE’17 exhibition will be held at Old Trafford, Manchester on Thursday, 8th June next year.
We have teamed up with Manchester United FC, one of the biggest sporting brands in the world, and will hold our trade show for the waste, recycling, and skip hire industries at the “Theatre of Dreams.”
This is GREAT news for exhibitors, and is a direct result of the feedback we received from those who attended WASTE’16 in June this year at Salford. We have listened and learned – and can guarantee that WASTE’17 will be bigger and better than ever before.
The exhibition will take place in the club’s iconic International Suite, which boasts encased football honours, plasma display screens, and is large enough to drive a car into. The interior space will host 80 host exhibitors plus seminar and lunch areas, and our guests will have full use of a bar and also enjoy first class catering from the club chefs.
Outside exhibitors will never have had it so good, displaying their products in the shadow of the Old Trafford ground – adjacent to the International Suite and in a 24 hour surveillance area. We have taken over a complete car park, and the large concreted area will allow companies to display in style, and produce valuable marketing material with the famed venue in the backdrop.
Like never before, the venue will be able to offer our loyal customers and friends the type of one day exposure their products fully deserve. Whether inside or outside, the world class setting is sure to attract a record number of industry relevant visitors, and we have already been deluged by interested companies from the three sectors.
SEEKING HEADLINE SPONSORS
We are currently seeking headline sponsors for the event, and there is a real opportunity for companies to steal a march on their competitors by partnering with us.
Headline sponsorship comes in at £3,000 plus VAT, and is the best way of securing the prime slots at the show. This includes full branding for your company at the one day show and in the magazine, plus a host of other goodies which will place any company firmly in the spotlight.
Lanyard sponsorship is another effective way of making your mark, and at £1,800 plus VAT is a great way of ensuring your company is at the forefront of the sector. For the same price Seminar or Lunch Area sponsorship is available, and both are brilliant marketing opportunities for companies wishing to make their mark and attract interest for their products or services.
Outside exhibition areas, which will be located in car park W1, come in two sizes – 6m x 12m or 12m x 12m. These are now available at a cost of £1,100 for the larger space, or £650 plus VAT for the smaller ones.
Internally, the International Suite stands are a great way of reaching your target audience, and 3m x 2m tables are available at a rate of £900 plus VAT. For those requiring a power point at their table, this is an extra £20 plus VAT.
Alternatively, Combination stands can be booked to suit the needs of our many clients, and there are two great options to consider.
The first is an inside stand/outside stand combo at £1,700 plus VAT, which includes an interior 3m x 2m table plus a 12 m x 12m exterior space. Number two is an inside stand combined with a small outside stand (6m x 12m), and comes in at £1,450 plus VAT.
Exhibitors and visitors will be able to access free Wi-Fi throughout, and enjoy free onsite parking for up to 5,000 vehicles with 24 hour surveillance.
Manchester United football club has also become the first sporting venue in the UK to achieve an ISO20121 certificate in sustainability, making it the perfect venue for our environmentally aware audience and visitors.
