Harrogate: Getting Retailers on the Right Trail

This year’s Home & Gift Buyers’ Festival has put together four enhanced product trails for visitors

There’s a quartet of ways to ensure you discover the right retail products for you at this year’s Harrogate festival.

The clever brains behind Home & Gift have compiled four enhanced, and distinct, product trails to put you on the right track for your business.

The categories are; ‘New In’, ‘Christmas-themed’, ‘Eco friendly’ and ‘Made in Britain’ and should ensure that visitors to the much-anticipated buyers’ festival, running from 17 to 20 July, can easily navigate the exhibition’s aisles and halls and uncover the products relevant to them. And with stickers and swing tags highlighting all the stands that have met the criteria for the trails, it really couldn’t be simpler.

Discovering new, trend-setting products is a must when attending any trade show and the New Product Trail will make sourcing what will be hot this coming season easy. New product highlights can be found at Grace and Favour Home (Stand: DP4-44), Northumbrian Candleworks (Stand: DP3-21), Ruff and Tumble (Stand: DP3 -15) and ECP Design (Stand: DP1-41, and pictured right).

With the build-up to December 25th starting earlier than ever, it’s never too soon to prepare for the festive season. Retailers can get ahead with the Christmas Product Trail and discover fantastic gifts from exhibitors including Artcuts Ltd (Stand: DP4-14), Waxcrayon Ltd (Stand: DP4-15A), Millefiori (Stand: Q23) and Jessica Hogarth Designs (Stand: DP5-55).

For those keen to buy green this year, TV Presenter & Eco Champion, Oliver Heath, has selected the ‘greenest’ products from the wealth of eco-friendly exhibitors to create the Eco Trail. Highlights include Nathalie Bond (Stand: DP4-4), Aura Que (Stand: G85), Best Years (Stand: DP3-36) and Picture Parlour (Stand: DP3-16).

And Finally, in celebration of products made in Britain, David Nicholls, Features Director for House & Garden magazine, has created the fantastic Best of British Trail. Must-see exhibitors include Bronte by Moon (Stand M1), Stockwell Ceramics (Stand: G161), Carrie Elspeth Ltd (Stand: DP1-36) and Megan Claire (Stand: DP5-64)
