SOLEX 2023: The exhibition that’s moving with the times

by | Aug 13, 2022 | News | 0 comments

The decision has been made to hold SOLEX in July next year (2023) as organisers say the far east market has shifted.

Organisers will be in discussion with the NEC about leaving the exhibition where it is as the location is suitable for exhibitors, it says. It also argues that it better suits the industry as it could be difficult to know which products to purchase before July, with spring being the main season for visitors when sales continue right up until the end of June. July allows visitors more time to make better informed buying decisions.

In a statement, SOLEX says: “You learn by experience, and we have learnt that SOLEX is a great show, the industry like it in July, the exhibitors like it in July so it turns out this show was great after all exactly where it was.”

It continues: “SOLEX is committed to delivering an ever-growing and improving show year on year. We are constantly striving to innovate and improve our exhibition, and we believe that there is always room for improvement. We will continue to work hard to ensure that our exhibitors and visitors have the best possible experience, and we appreciate your ongoing support.”

SOLEX is taking place from 10-12 July in Hall 5 at the NEC, Birmingham.
