The Gadget Show Live will this year feature a trade day, with the organisers hoping to tempt toy companies up to Birmingham to check out the latest tech developments which they may be using in the future.

The Gadget Show Live Professional will take place on Tuesday April 12th, the day before the five-day consumer exhibition takes place at the NEC. Some 250 companies will take part in the business-focused expo, showcasing the latest products to industry buyers from across the market.

Organisers say that 90,000 consumer visitors will attend The Gadget Show between April 13th and 17th, creating what they say is the biggest technology and consumer electronics in the UK. A number of free seminar sessions will also take place during the show.

Around 4,500 trade visitors and 500 members of press are expected to attend The GSL Professional day.

“We are extremely pleased to be announcing the launch of The GSL Professional,” said event director Matt Hodgins. “Following the incredible success of the consumer event, we are delighted to be able to extend the event to provide anyone with a professional interest in this market with the opportunity to meet with key suppliers in one place and within a business-focused environment. We are very much looking forward to delivering a first-class trade event for 2011 and its continued growth over the coming years.”
