The London Stationery Show continues to grow following this year’s successful event which saw a significant increase in the number of visitors and exhibitors. It will take place in the bigger Main Hall of the Business Design Centre for the first time in 2014.
“Exhibitor bookings to date are more than 100% up on the same time last year and the extra space is needed to meet demand” says organiser Chris Leonard-Morgan.
“It’s great news for buyers who will be able to see even more stationery products and suppliers next year, all in one dedicated hall with lots of natural light.”
Confirmed exhibitors to date include Lamy, Stone Marketing, Leuchtturm1917, KTwo Products, Castelli, Daler-Rowney, Collins Debden, Pentel (Stationery), Letts Filofax, Helix/Maped, Cathedral Products, Mustard, Studio Pens, Jakar/Caran d’Ache and Thinking Gifts.
“Filofax took part in the London Stationery Show for the first time in 2013” says Simon Coxhead, sales director, Filofax UK. “We were delighted with the response and quality of trade buyers that supported the show, and have rebooked for 2014.”
“As first-time exhibitors we were extremely impressed by the quality of visitors to the show. I honestly think it’s one of the best trade shows we’ve attended, in terms of being able to talk to such a high calibre range of existing and potential new customers”

Next year’s exhibition dates are Tuesday 1 – Wednesday 2 April.
