Emma Royston, Brand Manager, from SUCK UK, said: ‘Harrogate is a unique show for attracting all kinds of retailers that we do not get to see at any other UK show. It is somewhere to meet great quality independents too.

‘Having done the show a few years back we are really excited to be back with our new range and hope to attract a new string of great customers.’

In addition to a vast array of exciting new products this year, there has also been a number of improvements to the look and feel of the show, including an enhanced Great Northern Retail Forum.

Cleere Scamell, Show Director, said: ‘We are always looking at ways to make life at The Home & Gift Buyers’ Festival easier for everyone. Building on the easier layout introduced last year, we are adding another entrance point adjacent to the ever popular Design Point campus, creating the easiest-ever arrival experience.

‘Our aim is to make choosing the very best in design-led and everyday essential products as enjoyable an experience as it should really be.’
