After the political turmoil of recent months, this year’s Stationery Show, which ran in London’s Business Design Centre last week (30 April to 1 May) enjoyed a ‘stimulating and positive two days’, according to event manager Hazel Fieldwick.
The show brought together the UK’s key stationery suppliers, brands and retailers and influencers to enjoy two stationery focused days, right in the middle of National Stationery Week (29 April – 5 May).
“I can happily say it was the buzziest show yet”, commented Barry Heath of Tallon International.
Nikki Devine of long-standing exhibitors, Studio Pens, which also won the ‘Everyday Writing Instruments’ with its new ‘Frosted’ Kaweco Sport Series pen, agreed, saying: “Thanks for another great show – our best year yet I think!”
Amanda Walker of the award-winning Cult Pens commented: “We identified some really interesting new opportunities. A great show and to have this topped by winning an award made the day even more superb!”
Henri Davis, chair of the Supplier Stationery Awards judging panel, independent retail consultant and deputy chair of The Giftware Association, added: “The show had a fantastic vibe and there were so many new and innovative products on show, which confirms the industry is still in good shape.”
