The 35th edition of EFTTEX, that will take place at the Rai Centre in Amsterdam from the 16th to 18th June 2016, has been sold out eight months in advance.


There are 191 exhibitors and co-exhibitors with stands booked, coming from 35 countries worldwide and occupying 6578.5 sqm of floorspace.


Those that have not secured a stand can apply to join the official waiting list in which currently there are 30 companies awaiting, in case space becomes available. EFTTEX Manager Victoria Seymour says: “there is no guarantee to get a space for EFTTEX 2016 however, if you are interested in exhibiting, please do contact us and we will provide you with all the information you need”.

Apart from exhibiting there are other ways to promote a company including taking up one of the many sponsorship opportunities within the hall. “Sponsoring a show feature is a powerful alternative to waiting for a stand to become free. Companies can sponsor the Visitor Registration area, the Visitor Lounge and the Business Centre. These are all key areas where visitors congregate and spend time during the show. Depending on the type of package you take, you can also display your literature”, adds Victoria.


“These opportunities are available right now and they definitely guarantee the participation of a company at the show. To be eligible to sponsor EFTTEX they must be EFTTA or reciprocal members”, explains Victoria.


“Another option is to arrange to co-exhibit with a company already booked for EFTTEX 2016. By co-exhibiting you will enjoy the same exposure as any other exhibitor. If you work closely with any current exhibitors they may be happy to share a stand with you. Again, you must also be an EFTTA member or reciprocal member”, confirms Victoria.


The popularity in exhibiting at EFTTEX proves how important the show is for the industry and is returning to Amsterdam after 5 years. The Rai Centre venue proved to be a popular venue back in 2011 and we have no doubt it will be again in 2016.
