The London Stationery Show has been moved to a later slot this year, with organisers confirming a move of the show to October 5th and 6th 2021, taking place at the Business Design Centre.
With the UK’s vaccination programme well underway, and the Government due to announce a roadmap for easing restrictions next week, the show’s organisers have reacted to the expectation that exhibitions are to resume over the summer.
“We understand that it will take some time for retail to recover from the recent lockdown,” said event director, Alex Butler. “We believe that the October dates will allow for a successful show for visitors and exhibitors alike.
“We’re very grateful for the support of the industry and are looking forward to welcoming everyone to the Business Design Centre in October when we can finally meet and do business once again.”
In the meantime, the team is working on a new venture launching in the spring. Stationery365 is an online directory showcasing new products and collections, connecting suppliers with stationery and gift buyers all year round. Retailers will be able to browse brands and products all in one place, and message suppliers directly to place orders. More details will be released in the coming weeks.
London Stationery Show will take place on Tuesday 5 October and Wednesday 6 October 2021.
