voyageThe footprint of the show will look different this year with the addition of a new hall (Hall G in the Harrogate International Centre) where Spotlight will be launched. Spotlight brings together never-seen-before, original and quality gifts that will give stores a point of difference on the high street this Christmas.

Greetings and Stationery suppliers will continue to be hosted in Hall H, including the likes of Select Cards, Blue Eyed Sun, Holy Mackerel, Glick, Chase me Charlie, Wrendale Designs, KTWO, Mint, Courgette Cards and Forever Handmade Cards.

Newly appointed show director, Cleere Scamell, comments: “Following a very successful edition last year, Home & Gift 2013 will present visitors with the widest range of collections and product launches ever seen at the show. We have been working hard to introduce new areas such as Spotlight, featuring up-and-coming designers, plus the greetings and stationery hall, now in its second year, which will continue to offer retailers unique cards and small gifts to help encourage increased customer spend. I am very much looking forward to my first show in this new role, and to ensuring that retailers really do get the most from their visit to Home & Gift in July.”
