Additional halls opened to accommodate new exhibitors

Harrogate Christmas & Gift welcomes a host of new exhibitors for the 2017 show and having completely sold out its original hall allocation of A,B,C,D,H & M at the Harrogate International Centre in Harrogate, has now opened a further two exhibition halls KINGS SUITE AND HALL Q.

Visitor footfall has seen significant year-on-year growth since 2010 and the show now professes to be an annual favourite with garden centre buyers in particular. Whilst catering very much for the festive market, products on display are wide and diverse covering everything from indoor and outdoor furniture and décor to garden ware and gifts for all occasions.

Simon Anslow, show organiser, explains: “Harrogate Christmas & Gift has always been the number one UK show for Christmas buyers and attracts visitors from a number of sectors including department stores, independent retailers, visitor attractions and even historical shops such as cathedrals and stately homes. However, with a large number of garden centre buyers attending – and as garden centres are now very much a family destination – exhibitors are seeing growing demand for all sorts of products from toys and books, ornaments and gifts to even food and drink ranges.”

New exhibitors for 2017 include Boland, with hats, wigs, party decorations and accessories; Joe Davies hardware and fancy goods distributor; Libra with interior design accessories, home and giftware, lighting, furniture and wall décor; Culinary Concepts with furniture, gifts and everything for a perfectly dressed dinner table; and Crystal World – manufacturers and importers of glass, crystal and giftware. Herman De Greef with garden products; and NKUKU with homeware and gifts.

With space now available in the King’s Suite and Hall Q Harrogate Christmas & Gift can now accommodate more new exhibitors. Full information is available on the website, or contact Simon Anslow on 01902 882280 or email: simon@harrogatefair.com
