The previous event at Birmingham City's St Andrews stadium was a huge success - but don't take our word for it.
Some plaudits received after Birmingham Open day:
"We met at the FTD Open Day in Birmingham where we initially discussed each other's business ideas and the FTD played a key part in this relationship. The open day concept is a fabulous networking project which the FTD are looking to develop. It puts key decision makers together and allows businesses to pitch for potential business in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We are looking to link up with the FTD at the next open day to present our branding to more potential clients." Glen Wilkinson, Pro Active Teamwear after signing a deal with Leamington Spa FC.
'The FTD Open days are not only a great opportunity to network, but they are also very enjoyable. You can be in this trade for years and still learn new things from the seminars, and meeting like-minded professionals. Well worth a visit.' Paul Robinson, Premier Lingerie.
There will be a programme of short presentations throughout the day - which starts at 11.30 am - with free refreshments for delegates runs until approx 3.30pm. The event is free to attend and the guest list has been filling up quickly since the list was opened last week. There are already a varied and interesting assortment of companies and clubs represented covering many aspects of the game.
Some of the themes to be covered will be using e marketing to better effect, maximising value of stadiums, the value of branding at non league level, teamwear developments, and the importance of fitted footwear in sport, and the use of news and social networking on sportswebsites.
