The sourcing season will commence when ASIA EXPO and ASIAN PREMIUM FAIR will open the doors in February 2018. There will be a full house of Asian suppliers presenting a broad spectrum of Giftware, Houseware, Toys & Games and Stationery products."
Over the past twenty years Asia has come to dominate the manufacture and supply of competitively-priced merchandise and the number of export-ready and reliable suppliers has increased from not only North Asia, but now includes India and Vietnam.
From Vietnam, PAPER ART VIET COMPANY LIMITED can supply not only stationery but high quality greeting cards, using fine art papers.
This year’s LaunchPad London entries will be judged by Sidonie Warren, founder of design-led stationery retailer Papersmiths, Daniel Mark Carr, global brand director of international art supplies company Colart and award-winning textile and stationery designer Nikki Strange.
“To get feedback from this panel of judges is reason enough to enter the competition!” comments the London Stationery Show’s event manager, Hazel Fieldwick. “We’re delighted that Sidonie, Daniel and Nikki are supporting the competition in this way – their combined expertise is impressive!”
All three judges were recently identified as ‘Thirty Under 30’ nominees in an initiative to identify rising stars in the UK stationery industry.
