CAP Expo 2025: A New Expo for the celebration and party industry

The Celebration And Party Expo (CAP Expo), a brand-new trade exhibition for the party industry, is set to take place at the Telford International Centre on 23-25 March, 2025, announced BAPIA today (Friday 28 June 2024).

The press release states:

‘This exciting new event is designed to bring the industry together, from party planners and decorators, to retailers, entertainers and face painters, along with wholesalers, manufacturers and trade organisations, all under one roof.

‘The significant expansion of the celebration industry in recent years, coupled with a demand for more engaging interactive activities, entertainment and dynamic décor, highlights the strong demand for a specialised trade show. The Celebration And Party Expo aims to be the showcase for the industry and bring everybody together in one central location.’

John Bowler, chief executive at BAPIA which is organising the Expo, commented: “It is due to feedback from all sectors of the industry that we decided to organise CAP Expo. Exhibitors want a dedicated, cost-effective event that will attract a relevant audience, and visitors want the ability to connect with a broad range of suppliers from across the industry. The big shows have become too expensive for many exhibitors, and with more visitors wanting to connect with suppliers in the real world, we felt compelled to create an event that brings everyone together.”

CAP Expo 2025 promises to be a valuable networking opportunity for those within the industry and for those looking to join it. The event will feature a range of exhibits and activities relevant to the industry, providing a platform for industry professionals to connect, collaborate, and discover the latest trends and innovations.

In addition to the exhibition, CAP Expo 2025 will host a spectacular party night on Sunday 23 March. John Bowler added: “We know that everyone in our industry loves a party, so we will be having a fantastic party night that you will not want to miss!”
