Progressive Greetings Live is the only trade show in the world for the greeting card industry.

It is where greeting card retailers, from all corners of the world, come to see and meet the largest collection of card publishers under one roof for two days, in May, in London.

A substantial increase year on year in visitor numbers over its first five outings has proved that its unique approach is working well for exhibitors and visitors.

The show attracts strong export and overseas support with representation from countries as far afield as Pakistan and South Africa as well as from Europe, America and Australasia, with France, Australia, the Netherlands and Sweden leading the field in terms of international visitor numbers.

From the UK PG Live attracts buyers from John Lewis, Fenwick, Selfridges, Clinton Cards, Scribbler, Cards Galore, Asda, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, The Co-op, Wilkinson, National Trust, Next, Boots, Garden Leisure Group along with a whole host of independent card, gift, books and stationery retailers - many of whom were past award winners from The Greats (Gift retailer awards) and The Retas (Greeting card retailer awards).

The addition of an Artists' Quarter and DIAL @PGLive in 2012 also saw an increase in the number of licensees and manufacturers visiting hoping to source the perfect image or design for their next project.
