Autumn Top Drawer and Home return to Olympia in London this September with a host of new exhibitors, in what organiser Clarion Events bills as ‘the biggest show yet’.
Held from Sunday September 13 to Tuesday September 15, the two trade shows under one roof aim to offer buyers an opportunity to re-stock and refresh their stores in time for the Christmas season.
Clarion Events said: “The Top Drawer and Home team have travelled far and wide to thoughtfully curate and edit a super trade event, making it easier for buyers to find beautifully designed products with commercial appeal. And with 90% of exhibitors exclusive to the show, Top Drawer and Home will be the only place to see many of these exhibitors this season.”
Top Drawer is arranged into five product sectors: Gift, Stationery & Greetings, Fashion Accessories, Children’s, and Wellbeing. Brands already confirmed to appear include 1973 Ltd, Anorak, Balvi, Best Years Ltd, Cubic, j-me, LA BRUKET, Miss Etoile Aps, Nkuku. Ohh Deer, Orla Kiely, Phaidon, Pilgrim, Polite Company, RICE, SENCE Copenhagen and Wild And Wolf.
After the success of last year’s inaugural autumn edition, Home returns alongside Top Drawer, showcasing a selection of modern, classic and vintage homeware.
According to Clarion Events, “a significant number of Home exhibitors are international exhibitors that have never exhibited at the show before, so buyers will be hard-pressed to find such an exciting and surprising array of products in one location.” The list of UK and international exhibitors covers interior accessories, kitchen and dining, soft furnishings, furniture and lighting.
Housewares brands include Alessi, Black + Blum, SIA Home Fashion, Ulster Weavers, Di Classe, Forma House, Parlane, Garden Trading, Haus, Leonardo, Ella Doran, LSA International, MAKE International,Margo Selby, London Ornaments, Melody Rose,Terrace & Garden, Uberstar, Umbra and White Brands.
A new seminar programme is planned. Designed with the retailer in mind, ‘The Academy’ will feature presentations from retail experts across all three days of the show.
