Registration is already for the Spring Fair 2020 which runs from Sunday, 2 February – Thursday, 6 February.
Hot on the tail of Spring Fair 2019, the ITE Group plc (organisers of Autumn Fair, Bett (including Asia, Brasil Educar, Latin America and Middle East & Africa), BVE, CWIEME, the Education Show, Glee and Pure London) have opened registration for their biggest event yet. Promising a bold new direction with a major programme of investment, Spring Fair 2020 is set to have a fresh look and feel - intended to reinvigorate the way buyers source products and connect with exhibitors. The initiative is the first major change for the show in eight years.
Changes will include a re-organisation of the show floor into two distinct sourcing destinations, Gifts in the Piazza and Home & Living in the Atrium. In Hall 1, the show's fashion segment will also host the high-end sub-sector Jewellery & Watch, while Hall 2 will feature Greetings & Gift, the largest gathering of its type in the UK. Hall 3 will play host to Beauty and Wellbeing, while the Atrium will house Home & Living, including a brand-new Sourcing area.
Having won ‘Best New Product’ in the Home, Gift & Clothing Category at Glee 2018 for the Meg Hawkins Recycled Aluminium Collection, Tilnar Art’s relationship with wildlife watercolour artist, Meg Hawkins, continues to flourish.
Originally training in art and sculpture, Meg went on to work successfully as a photographer for 16 years, and as a children’s illustrator, before committing to life as an artist four years ago.
Working from her studio in Shropshire, from where she sells her work all over the world, Meg partnered with Tilnar Art last year. She has also recently opened a shop in the Pride Hill Shopping Centre in Shrewsbury, where she stocks her own work including cards, prints, clothing, gift wrap and her sensational splashbacks. Recently added to her extensive range is the Bella (clothing) Collection, which was shortlisted for the 2019 Gift of the Year.
National Stationery Week 2019 will run Monday, 29 April to Sunday, 5 May.
The campaign needs five more Partners to get its 2019 promotion underway.
What does NSW want to achieve?
The purpose of National Stationery Week and its Writing Matters campaign has always been to celebrate writing by hand, to get people all over the world talking about and sharing details of their favourite stationery and stationers, and of course for everyone to send more letters and cards!
What sort of results does it get?
The 2019 campaign generated nearly 200 pieces of national press coverage, reached 30,000 stationery fans on social media and just over 100 retailers ran their own National Stationery Week promotions.
