VIP ticket for Cheltenham Racecourse St Patricks day race day attached to black felt fedora

The Print Show recently invited 30 existing and potential exhibitors to enjoy a day at the races for its first Hospitality Day of 2024

Braving the great British weather, attendees including large manufacturers, resellers, trade printers, and paper merchants, flocked to Cheltenham Racecourse on Thursday 14th March.

Some guests enjoyed more success than others but the real reward of the day was the chance to network and mingle with new and existing industry contacts in a relaxed environment.

“Like any event, it’s getting people there which is the toughest challenge and thankfully all 30 of our guests arrived,” joked Chris Davies, event director of The Print Show, adding: “The day was very well received, and everyone had a fantastic day out.”

“A few of the lucky ones even picked a couple of winners, sadly that wasn’t the case for me. Many of our guests commented on how great it was to catch up with other industry professionals, some they had never met or not seen for ages.”

Following the event, guests took to LinkedIn to share their enjoyment and to thank The Print Show for its hospitality.

Sam Cawthorne, marketing communications lead at Kyocera Document Solutions, commented: “Thank you for a wonderful day. Definitely getting a Fedora next time. Lovely to meet everyone.”
