London Stationery Show was a success

This year’s Stationery Show, which ran in London’s Business Design Centre from April 30-May 1, provided a a positive two-day event according to Hazel Fieldwick, event manager.

The show brought together the UK’s key stationery suppliers, brands, retailers and influencers to enjoy a stationery focused two-day event during National Stationery Week (NSW).

The show attracted a range of independent gift shops and stationers such as Calliope Gifts, Jane Armour Trading, Scriptum Fine Stationery, London Graphic Centre, Colemans of Towcester, Jarrold & Sons, Mantons Cards, Morgan’s Stationery, Pen to Paper, Pencil Me In and Marple Stationery Supplies.

“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,” said Henri Davis, chair of the Supplier Stationery Awards judging panel, independent retail consultant and deputy chair of The Giftware Association.

The Supplier Stationery Award winners took center stage in the show’s New Product Showcase, which greeted visitors as they entered the show. This year the Stationery Awards had its own website and entries were opened to the whole industry.

“It’s important the Stationery Awards are representative of what’s new in the market and help to set benchmarks in performance and good practice that others can aspire to and aim to beat!” said Vanessa Fortnam, awards co-ordinator. “Being able to display the Awards entries at the stationery sector’s annual show is a big plus for the entrants and buyers.”

The show’s 10th anniversary will be celebrated on Tuesday, April 21 and Wednesday, April 21, 2020 at the Business Design Centre in London.
