Now in its eighth year, the exhibition will incorporate over 250 fabulous card publishers, artists and designers showcasing their latest collections.
Over 100 exhibitors are exclusive to PG Live for 2016, and the star-studded line-up is packed with some of the most exciting and dynamic names from the world of greeting cards, from Hallmark and UK Greetings to Paperlink and Woodmansterne.
“We are incredibly excited about this year’s show,” said Warren Lomax, joint show director, “We have more publishers exhibiting than ever before, and they have ensured there will be fabulous offers, key launches and more than a few surprises in store!”
A number of special anniversaries will be celebrated during the show, including Carte Blanche’s 21st and a quarter-century for Abacus Cards, not to mention the Queen’s 90th birthday, due to be marked in unique fashion by the card industry at PG Live
