With more big name brands, exciting new show sectors, unmissable keynote speakers, new networking opportunities and an improved show layout there are so many new reasons to visit the Harrogate show this July

The 2019 show will also see the launch of Match, a new initiate to connect the right suppliers with the best retailers through a VIP hosting programme and a range of online tools.

Show Director, Louise Morris said: 'Home & Gift is unlike any other trade show and that’s why it is loved by the industry. Not only is it the perfect time to secure orders for the most important retail season, but it is also where the industry come together and relationships are celebrated. Retailers and exhibitors can do business against the beautiful backdrop of Harrogate, making it the most majestic buying experience. In this challenging climate it’s more important to us than ever before that the 2019 show is a platform for meaningful connections, shared learnings and festivity; a truly unmissable event.'
