The Movers & Storers Show 2015: Exhibition Guide

Sep 02, 2015
A quick run down of what's on at The Movers & Storers Show 2015 plus a downloadable exhibition guide.

What’s on at the Show

We had a fantastic show last year, and we’ll be building on that success this year with a completely new feature - the TwentyCi Web & Social Media Clinic offering free advice and support. We’re also expanding our party night on Tuesday 15, which is always a great event, so book your tickets now if you want to come along!

As per last year, all the competitions are scheduled for Wednesday 16, so if you want to mix business with pleasure, that’s the day to attend. The atmosphere on Tuesday will be a little calmer and more business-focussed.

The event is open from 09:30 – 17:00 on Tuesday, and from 09:30 – 16:00 on Wednesday.

The Exhibition

Once again this year we have increased the number of large-scale exhibits (trucks, forklifts, containers, etc.) on show in the Pit Lane Garages, and hopefully we’ll get some nice warm September weather which will make it a pleasure to explore. Upstairs in Hall 1 we’ll have a diverse range of exhibition stands showcasing a variety of industry-specific products and services. As well as checking out what’s new and meeting some fantastic suppliers, this is your opportunity to enter the competitions that many of our exhibitors run on their stands – you could come away with some amazing freebies!

The Basil Fry & Co Learning Zone

Our free seminar theatre is back on the mezzanine level overlooking the main exhibition hall, and this year it is kindly sponsored by Basil Fry & Co. Our programme is still being finalised as we like to put in as many up-to-date topical presentations as possible, but we know it will include sessions from digital marketing expert James Dearsley, a session on the legalities of self storage, a presentation on how to publicise your company for free by The Mover’s own Steve Jordan, and a talk by Ashley Boroda about winning pitches. Several sessions were standing room only last year, so make sure you get a seat early …

The Movers & Storers Truck Show – sponsored by Matthew James (Wednesday only)

Now, this is one for you petrol heads. This competition is your chance to show off any vehicle in your fleet that makes you proud – from a vintage van to a pantechnicon. Entries will be displayed in the parking area immediately opposite the Pit Lane Garages on Wednesday, and judging will be overseen by Matt De-Machen from Matthew James Removals – last year’s winner. There will be cash prizes and trophies available in several categories, plus a great PR opportunity for the winners. You can find more information on our show website, along with the competition entry form.

The Simpson Packaging Packer of the Year Contest (Wednesday only)

We are pleased to announce the return of this extremely popular competition, which will once again be sponsored by Simpson Packaging. This year, the competition will be devised and run by Britannia Reeves who have worked extremely hard to produce a great challenge for you. It is completely free to enter the contest, but due to high demand we suggest that you pre-register – for the last two years running we have been fully booked with people wanting to have a go. The winners will receive a crystal trophy, a £100 cash prize and a £100 voucher to spend at Simpson Packaging as well as bragging rights for twelve months!

The Movers & Storers Show Party Night

Previously known as the Exhibitors’ Party, this year we’re expanding our Tuesday night shindig and offering tickets to anyone attending the show. Those who have managed to get an invite in the past will already know that this is a fab night out – a relaxed and sociable business event, with great food and drink, entertainment, and usually one or two surprises! Tickets cost £60 per person (which includes a donation to Macmillan) and need to be booked in advance – see the bottom of the page for contact details.

The TwentyCi Web & Social Media Clinic

Are you mystified by Instagram? Are you missing the point of Twitter? Maybe your website needs a refresh and you don’t know where to start? Well don’t panic – just book an appointment with our expert advisers at this year’s new feature – the Website & Social Media Clinic sponsored by TwentyCi. We can set up your social media accounts for you, advise on how to maximise your online presence, and offer tips and solutions to help you get the most from your website – all completely free!

The Manage My Moves Café & Networking Lounge

As always, the Networking Lounge is at the heart of the show in Hall 1, and this year it is sponsored by new exhibitor Manage My Moves. It’s a great space where you can grab a coffee, take the weight off your feet, chat to your colleagues and enjoy great views of the on-track racing action.
