What expect from the Home and Gift Buyer’s festival in Harrogate next week
The Home and Gift Buyer’s Festival is coming up in Harrogate next week from the 16th to the 18th of July. But what are some of the highlights and reasons to attend? You can find the full event details here.
It’s a vital event for retailers specialising in the Home and Gift sectors. You’ll be able to hear from experts, meet suppliers, size up products and get appraised of the key trends and fashions in the sector right now and for the year ahead. It’s been the go-to event for the right people for 55 years.
One session that looks extremely entertaining is from TV doyenne, and Loose Woman, Janet Street-Porter. She will discuss why being supportive of Made in Britain Products – from food and craft to design and local products – is so very important today in a post-Brexit country, and what we should learn from countries such as Italy. But that’s just one talk over the three days. There are loads more.
And obviously there’s a whole host of exhibitors, information, attractions and the like at the event. Will you be going? It’s not just for the big chains. They say that independent retailers make up 66% of the 12k visitors visitors who attend during the 3 day event.
Tamebay‘s Dan Wilson (that’s me) will be there so if you want to touch base and have a chat with one of our editors be sure to get in touch. We’re always up for a coffee or a beer and meeting valued readers and suppliers and Harrogate is a great town to do that in. Do get in touch if you’re going to be there.
