Today is the first day of the Harrogate Home and Gift trade fair, which runs until Wednesday the 20th of July.
The trade fair has been given a new name, and is now the Home & Gift Buyers’ Festival, possibly with a nod to the fun atmosphere Harrogate provides, which helps it stand out from other trade events and makes it so popular with both exhibitors and visitors!
Yes, there is plenty of Yorkshire Tea drunk, but the Pimms bar is also incredibly popular 🙂 . There are four product trails to follow around the trade fair, the Eco Trail, Best of British Trail, New Product Trail and Christmas Trail.
We’re not exhibiting at the Buyers’ festival, an exhibitors stand is a little out of our price range (as they say in Yorkshire “‘Ow Much?!”), and if you can’t make the trade fair either but would like to discover some fabulous British made greeting cards and gifts for yourself, have a look at the trade and wholesale page on the Chiggs website, and get in touch with us!
The Great Northern Retail Forum takes place over three days of the fair (Sunday to Tuesday) with a line-up of retail experts and speakers offering various talks in The Forum next to Hall D.
