Why exhibit

The London Stationery Show is the UK’s most important event for writing and paper products, and a unique platform for meeting the leading stationery buyers in every retail sector fact-to-face.  It’s the stationery event of the year, and where fashion meets function.

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 it is so focused and they can see more writing and paper products and brands from around the world than at any other UK exhibition, all in one place.  Two thirds of exhibitors don’t exhibit at any other UK event.

“The Stationery show is a focused, intimate show that attracts great brands and great buyers. The central location and organisation of the two days make it a smooth, enjoyable date in the annual trade show calendar” Catherine Snell, UK senior account manager, NPW/MoleskineSTShow15_369

Always in fashion

Posted on 21st April 2016 by Chris Leonard-Morgan

Have you noticed how everyone seems to be selling stationery these days, and whose they are selling?

It’s not just the established brands.  There are a growing number of newer names selling their own like Tiger, Oliver Bonas, Smiggle, kikki.K and Typo, to name just a few.Tiger 1

With the London Stationery Show and National Stationery Week (including World Stationery Day) just days away, I find myself focusing on why this is and the remarkable universal appeal of these largely functional products which represent such a huge and dynamic market.

kikki.KStationery is finding its way into every kind of retail outlet at a time when it is becoming harder and harder to categorise many of them.  There is no single reason for this, rather a number of them all coming together – a reaction to over digitalisation by consumers, a desire for self-expression and personalisation, online, the usefulness and enduring popularity of the products themselves and fashion. Or do I mean lifestyle?

Paperchase has done more than anyone to drive the category and they are in no doubt that they are in the fashion business.  Stationery is where fashion meets function.

Today’s younger generation and millennials love their brands and like to engage with them, and feel a sense of ownership.

We should all take note.

Henri Davis, independent retail advisor and vice-president of The Giftware Association, who chaired the judging panel for the sixth time commented:

“The judges were thrilled by the strength and diversity of the products entered this year.  With four new judges on the panel there were comments about how useful it was to see focused selections of new products to evaluate and compare.  They were all making notes of products they wanted to follow up on.”

The panel of judges this year were Joanne Barber, of the Stationery & Gift Boutique, Bedfordshire and Abel Dos Santos, gifts and stationery buyer at Foyles Bookshop, who have both judged before.  They were joined by Charlotte McCarthy, stationery buyer for John Lewis, Suzanne Hack, procurement and category manager at London Graphic Centre, Louisa Brenton, gift and stationery buyer of Bentalls, Fenwick Kingston and Lucy Edmonds, owner of Quill London.
