First sponsors announced for 2016 National Stationery Week

National Stationery Week announces four leading brands as the first sponsors for nest year’s show.

Sheaffer, Maped Helix, Nu Notebooks and, for the first time, Staedtler are today revealed as sponsors of next year’s National Stationery Week which runs from Monday 25 April to Sunday 1 May.

Now in its fifth year, National Stationery Week is a celebration of the written word and all things stationery, and is organised by the London Stationery Show. This year’s event generated millions of pounds worth of media coverage and retail sales, and reached more than 20 million consumers with the message that writing by hand is important and has a vital part to play in personal communications in an increasingly digital world.

The theme for 2016 will be “Writing matters”.

Chris Leonard-Morgan, the founder of NSW said that he was delighted to see sponsors committing early to the 2016 campaign. “To have buy in already from three previous sponsors from the 2015 campaign as well as a new one is hugely encouraging and gets the campaign off to a great start. Each year we embark on a new journey with National Stationery Week and for 2016 we will be focusing on why writing matters.”

Companies interested in becoming a sponsor of National Stationery Week should contact Chris on clm@firstevents.com

This year’s campaign saw a record number of high street and online retailers seize the opportunity to increase footfall and sales with special promotions and activity.
