London Stationery Show a hit with buyers
MAY-2012 – Stationery Show in London on 24-25th April 2012 was voted “best yet” by visitors and exhibitors and attracted many of the UK’s top independent and multiple retailers of stationery, says organiser First Events. “It’s great that there is a dedicated, aspirational yet functional stationery exhibition in the UK – I enjoyed the show and found several new suppliers. I hope more suppliers will embrace it next year” said Sonia Reddi, buyer for Waterstones. “As a first time visitor, I thought the show was excellent with lots of interesting exhibitors” said Jo Irons, buyer for online retailer Bureau Direct. “It’s fantastic to have a show dedicated to stationery at last – it will be on our regular trade show itinerary from now on.” Visitor numbers were up on the previous year and included Selfridges, The Pen Shop, WHSmith, Tesco, Card Factory, Ryman, John Lewis, Colemans, Wilkinson, Scribbler, Fenwick, Harrods, Bentalls, Websters Pen Shops, Staples, The Range and Osbornes Stationers. This year’s exhibition had the products of more than 150 different suppliers on 82 stands almost all of whom were showing new products. The 2013 exhibition will take place at the Business Design Centre in London on Tuesday 23 – Wednesday 24 April.
