A large number of key retail buyers attended Top Drawer at London's Olympia, organiser Clarion Events has confirmed.
Retailer attendance at the gift-focused show increased by 12 per cent from the previous autumn event in 2010. Buyers from Harrods, the Saatchi Gallery, Fenwick, John Lewis, Anthropologie and the Conran Shop were among those attending.
In addition, international visitors increased by a strong 40 per cent.
In 2012, the show will run from September 16th-18th, meaning Top Drawer will no longer clash with Maison et Objet in Paris.
"Top Drawer proved it was more than just an exhibition, it had a buzz" said show director, Raj Gill. "We enjoyed a healthy increase in buyers who wanted our design-led offer, plus instant inspiration and chose not to miss out on those unique products. We look forward to another successful Top Drawer this spring."
The spring event will take place at Earls Court from January 15th-17th. Click here for further details.
