Happy New Year! We hope you had a fantastic holiday - the lucky ones among us managed to take a few extra days off over the festive period, but for most gift retailers business remains incredibly busy with January sales and customers flocking for a bargain.
With just a week until the doors open to Harrogate Christmas & Gift 2015, the people of Harrogate are treated to an extended festive atmosphere with Christmas lights and decorations sparkling in the streets and trees. This entire beautiful north Yorkshire town comes alive with the buzz of the show which, including all of the exhibitors and visitors, attracts around 4,000 additional people to the town filling restaurants, bars, hotels and shops - and of course the halls of the Harrogate International Centre.
There is still time to pre-register to visit (entry is free!) so if you have a friend or colleague in the industry who you think would like to attend, please forward this email or recommend the website at www.harrogatefair.com
