New Exhibits & Artists Confirmed for The UK Drum Show 2023

New Exhibits & Artists Confirmed for The UK Drum Show 2023

As 2022 soon comes to an end, brands ready plans for 2023 with returning and further new companies displaying their latest percussion products destined for The UK Drum Show at the ACC Liverpool September 30th & October 1st.

Having taken place at the earlier date of April 2022, The UK Drum Show returns to its usual time of late September next year. The 2022 return of The UK Drum Show saw an additional 26 new companies head to Liverpool after the restrictions of COVID-19, making this the largest gathering of brands in the history of the show.

Catching up with organiser Neil Golding ahead of next years show he states, “obviously returning after COVID, which we appreciate is now a part of our everyday lives, this years show was the biggest for us yet with regards to the number of exhibits and public attendance. Whilst businesses and the public maneouvre the economic crisis, we have been most fortunate with the level of support from our exhibiting partners, complimented by further new interest to exhibit from the UK and International companies investing in our event.”

Asked why the show continues to gain interest and grow year on year, Golding replies, “I really think it’s a number of things. The whole landscape has changed so much over these past years. I think the commonly shared reason though is that direct consumer facing opportunity between brand owners or distributors, to really gauge what drummers think about their products is invaluable. Whilst sales can be made to end-users at the show, being a consumer event which can assist with exhibiting costs, it can prove useful to showcase new or full ranges of products possibly not stocked or promoted by retailers, so it can assist or play a part of driving drummers into their own local music retail stores.”

Golding continues, “the extended opportunity the show presents every year that it takes place, is that our audience grows. What I mean by that, is whilst  we are very pleased to welcome guests through the doors for the two days of the event, committed exhibitors have an opportunity and the benefit to communicate with our audience all year round between shows. News updates or new product innovations can be shared with historic and present guests in real-time through news e-shots and social media, so it assists to drive interest for drums and percussion throughout the year. We have experienced more and more brands realising the benefit beyond the two days of the show and that we feel is a real added benefit at no extra cost,” Golding concludes.

The markers are used to place around stands/feet to keep the position when the drums are removed, a professional quality product instead of Gaffa tape.

Coming in different colours can add a little bit of visual colour to the aesthetic of the drum kit. Custom work/projects is also taken on to hopefully turn an idea into a reality through the process of 3D printing.
