Bumper Event on the cards

With many months to go until Harrogate Christmas & Gift, the organisers advise that the show is almost sold out, with existing exhibitors reserving larger stand spaces and numerous new companies jumping on board.

For anyone in the Christmas business, this show has always been an important date for the diary, but in the last four years the show has grown beyond expectations. Significantly, whilst the festive season remains the focus of the entire event, the diversity of ranges displayed encompass occasions for the whole year round. Amongst the Christmas trees, tinsel and baubles, visitors will be presented with thousands of products for the home and garden from gifts and ornaments, furniture and pictures, right through to floral displays, garden furniture, lights and barbeques. In fact, pretty much most of the products you find in your local garden centre are quite likely to have been sourced from Harrogate Christmas & Gift.

Hall A, which is now fully booked includes new exhibitors Global Journey - bringing an exciting range of music and jewellery; and Lemax Europe - a worldwide leader in collectable village miniatures. Another new exhibitor in Hall B, which is also fully booked, is Koopman of Holland with a huge and diverse catalogue of products for all occasions.

Premier Decorations will be taking Hall H in its entirety launching new ranges from it Christmas, Outdoor Living and Halloween collections. Also, with lots of new products on offer, Heaven Sends and RJB Stone have both significantly increased their stand sizes for 2016.

Simon Anslow, show organiser, comments: "Harrogate Christmas & Gift continues to go from strength to strength and is now considered the number one trade show for garden centre and visitor attraction buyers as well as department stores and independent gift retailers. With so many new exhibitors joining the show, we can expect another bumper event in 2016."
