Why exhibit?

The London Stationery Show is a brilliant platform for putting your products in front of the UK’s leading buyers from every retail sector when they are at their most receptive and totally focused on stationery and writing products.  There’s nothing else like it, and it’s very cost effective.

Whether you are a dedicated stationery company or have a limited stationery offer which you want to grow by meeting different buyers to the ones you normally deal with, this is the exhibition for you.  You’ll be in great company.

Buyers like the Stationery Show because they see more stationery products and brands from around the world than at any other UK exhibition, all in one place.  Over two thirds of exhibitors don’t exhibit at any other UK show.

Does anyone NOT like stationery?

Posted on 6th March, 2015

DGP_Stationery_103It is around this time of year more than any other when the build up to the London Stationery Show and National Stationery Week is getting underway, that I really realise what an amazing business the stationery market is.

The feeling is even more acute this year with the first World Stationery Day taking place during National Stationery Week, on Wednesday 29 April.NSW 2013 with date and website and partners (no website)

The nature of the products is such that it’s not like work at all – ok, that might be over doing it a bit! – and I am constantly struck by how readily people openly admit to loving stationery.

But perhaps I shouldn’t be surprised when so many of the products look so good – this is after all where fashion meets function, and most people’s relationship with the products starts when they are very young.

It’s therefore disturbing to keep on hearing that no one writes by hand anymore (which is a myth) and to learn that Finland and a number of states in the USA no longer insist that handwriting is on the curriculum for children.

They are so wrong – being able to write, and learning to do so as a child is as important as learning to use a keyboard, even in an increasingly digital age.

More anon on this!

Keep writing….

Major retailers pledge support for National Stationery Week

Posted on 31st March, 2015

Many of the High Street’s major retailers and independents are throwing their weight behind this year’s National Stationery Week and Get Britain Writing campaign which aims to keep Britain putting pen to paper.

Retailers up and down the country are pledging their support for the annual campaign – with the promise of getting their tills ringing as millions of consumers focus on all things stationery.

The campaign runs from April 27 to May 3 and a host of big-name retailers have already committed their support including John Lewis, B&M Stores, Smiggle, Staples, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Wilko, the Post Office, Funky Pigeon, The Pen Shop, Websters, Colemans, Blott, Paperchase, John Smiths, Ryman and Poundland.

The organisers behind NSW – which is now in its fourth year – are making the campaign as simple as possible for retailers to get involved, and have extended the closing date to be involved as a participating retailer until Thursday 2 April. NSW not only provides point-of-sale artwork packs free of charge, but retailers are given special ‘focus’ days to promote the goods they sell as well as key social media hashtags, and are featured on the National Stationery Week website,

An extensive communications plan is in place to give retailers a direct voice to millions of consumers throughout the week, allowing them to take full advantage of the nation’s love of stationery and the increase in sales the event brings.

Ruth Burgess, Stationery Buyer at B&M Stores, said “We are delighted to participate in this year’s National Stationery Week . At B&M, we feel that stationery can be fun as well as practical when used in everyday life. Making stationery fun gets people engaged, especially children and it’s important to get children inspired to write and be creative. A blank piece of paper and a pen can open up a child’s imagination to create something unique. Through our social media channels, look out for some exciting prizes every day during National Stationery Week…they will be something to write home about!”

Natasha Stoddart, Buyer for John Lewis, added: “As a retail outlet which prides its stationery offering on fashion-led pieces with a  focus on maintaining our stationery aisles as places where our customers want to see the latest items, we really embrace this campaign not only in store but online and across social media.”

Some of the biggest suppliers to stationery retailers are sponsoring this year’s campaign, including Sheaffer, Maped Helix, Dodo Pad, Kokuyo, Zebra Pen and Nuco International.

National Stationery Week is a celebration of the written word and all things stationery, and is organised by the London Stationery Show. Last year’s event generated millions of pounds worth of media coverage and reached over 20 million consumers with the message that, even in a digital world, the power of writing by hand cannot be overestimated.
