With the arrival of the New Year comes the opportunity to revamp and refresh. Trends are set, possibilities and projections start to materialise and retailers can take the bull by the horns and begin to plan their trajectory for 2019.
WIDDOP and Co.’s January Show, taking place from 2nd to 23rd in our Manchester showrooms, is the perfect, all-encompassing source of inspiration under one roof. Whether you’re planning for Valentine’s Day or Christmas, there is the perfect selection of fresh and trend led designs.
Explore exciting new ranges such as Just 4 Kids “In the Jungle” and Celebrations’ “Tutti Frutti” and browse fresh distributorships and licensed collections from Roald Dahl and Meg Hawkins.
Be the first to see the magical Santa Express showroom, as the 2019 Christmas Collection rolls into town and toast the New Year at the Celebrations Café, where you’ll experience unforgettable hospitality.
From Monday 7th January for one week only, WIDDOP will be hosting leading greetings card publishers Wendy Jones-Blackett and Carte Blanche Greetings, who will both be showcasing their brand new 2019 collections.
Wendy is excited about this new venture and comments, “We are delighted to be involved in WIDDOP and Co.’s January Show where we will be displaying all of the 'New for 2019' greeting card launches as well as our customer favourites. In addition, Widdop will be launching a collection of mugs featuring our unique designs and we will have the matching cards available too!”
Carte Blanche Greeting’s Marketing Manager, Grace Elphinstone looks forward to the opportunity, “This is the perfect opportunity for setting up a Carte Blanche Greetings ‘home from home’ to meet with customers in the North. The show represents a great opportunity for us to showcase our award-winning stable of brands; Me to You, Tiny Tatty Teddy, Wishing Well Studios, Blue Mountain Arts, Emotional Rescue, Violent Veg and Hotchpotch, as well as some of our new brands such as All Creatures. The show represents a unique buying experience where customers can see our full greeting card, gift and plush offering in a relaxed and inspiring setting.”
