Starting out as a freelancer in the world of retail and exhibition displays, Martin saw an opportunity to start up his own business in branded concert merchandise in the UK, in conjunction with his brother Harvey GoldsmithРwell known promoter in the music industry.

Martin Goldsmith, Founder Chairman of EML: “I approached Cliff Richard whose words still ring in my ears- ‘Who in the hell wants to buy a T-Shirt with my face on it?’ 40 years later the fans are still buying his swag.”

One of Martin’s greatest days was trading at Wembley Stadium- World Wrestling Federation Summer Slam 1992 (professional wrestling), selling an impressive ¬£1m+. His most pleasurable times have been working with Pavarotti and Live Aid amongst a whole host of renowned artist and events.

Martin has taken a step back from the fast paced merchandise¬†industry, enjoying life loving tennis and jazz (and keeping the office tidy!), whilst the company continues to grow in the hands of his son’s Jeremy and Paul, with the support from a fantastic and loyal team of course!

Buemi Brings Home Gold In Berlin And So Did Event

It was a weekend to remember for Buemi and Event enjoyed success with our merchandise stand.

Sebastien Buemi bolted his way round the track on Sunday to win the Berlin ePrix. The win now means Buemi has closed the gap on Lucas Di Grassi’s championship run to just 1 point heading into the Formula E season finale.

It has been an exciting and eventful season, which has witnessed the sport take off into race car heaven, dominating headlines and seeing audience numbers grow immensely across each race. Event! have loved working with Formula-E and curating the sports merchandise. We are just as excited for the season finale in July!

Check out our gallery from yesterday’s race and our merch stand.

If you like what you see why not check out our Formula E webshop.  The finale is on the 2nd and 3rd of July in London, so get yourselves prepared with t-shirts, caps and more.

What a Month of Sporting Event Merchandising

What a fantastic month of sport it has been and Event have been at the heart of it all.

Event have yet again been at¬†the forefront of sports merchandising and have been involved in some fantastic sporting moments¬†this year. Where to begin…

BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA - FEBRUARY 06: Sam Bird of DS Virgin Racing Formula E Team celebrates at the podium after winning the Buenos Aires ePrix as part of 2015-2016 FIA Formula E Championship at Puerto Madero Street Race Track on February 06, 2016 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Lets reverse back to the first weekend in February where Event were zooming round Buenos Aires in Argentina, South America, for Formula-E. Then the next day we flew all the way back to London, got a quick train to the trendy Camden town to sell some merch for the 2016 Super bowl. It was kinda a good excuse to watch and cheer on too…

Then we had two amazing weekends with the British Athletics in Glasgow and Sheffield, selling a range of products for the fans.

Now we are in March, (already?!) and we have already witnessed success at UCI 2016 World Track Championship. We would like to congratulate Laura Trott who produced a thrilling win in the women’s surge race at the roaring velodrome. We still have a weekend of breathtaking cycling to come with the likes of Sir Bradley Wiggins still to feature- we have named our teddy bear after the Olympic and Tour De France champ. Take a look here.¬†

Plus Mr Murray is back in action for Great Britain in the Davis Cup hosted in Birmingham. There are thousands of¬†British fans are cheering on the team wearing our #BacktheBrits t-shirts. C’MON ANDY! He’s in winning form- who’s the daddy ūüėČ

Tonight we are off to watch some Mexican wrestling, LUCHA BRITANNIA!
