Home and Gift show review By Tom Sykes, Xystos

‘It’s been a very positive show. ‘On Sunday – taking into consideration the hot weather and Wimbledon tennis and World Cup football finals – things were very upbeat on the Xystos stand and we believe we had our share of the traffic in the halls. ‘From first thing on Monday footfall was far better. The Splosh ranges have sold phenomenally well and there were also strong orders for our new Cello wax products and the Himalayan Glow salt lamps. ‘I think the show organisers did a great job with the logistics, transport and signage this year and we are delighted with that. ‘The home and gift market has been challenging in 2018. After bad weather in the first third of the year, the weather has been too good, with the royal wedding and World Cup also taking money out of our category. But now retailers are getting on board and buying for Christmas.’
