The industry’s most beloved buying event will be gracing the heart of Harrogate once again this summer from the July 16-19, with four jam-packed days of unique networking opportunities and 1000s of incredible new products to discover from familiar names as well as exciting new brands on the block.
Taking over the many halls of the Harrogate Convention Centre and the grounds of the DoubleTree by Hilton, this year’s edition seeks to transport us back to the Summer of Love as we tap into the “Modern Psychedelic” trend forecasted by show partner The Better Trends Company. Fuelled by an ever-growing desire amongst consumers to relive the joys of days gone by and embrace more retro elements within their style, visitors will be immersed in bold vibrant colours and timeless prints inspired by the 60s throughout the summer show.
Spanning five halls and three Design Points, visitors will be able to explore everything from showstopping homewares and gifts to culinary infusions and statement accessories. An array of one-of-a-kind artisan products will also be showcased in the brand new “Craft” section, where eager buyers will be able to explore truly unique handmade and bespoke pieces and meet the designer-makers behind them.
Renowned for its stunning summer setting, diverse range of brands from across the UK and beyond, as well as its perfect timing ahead of the industry’s busiest buying season, it’s no wonder that Home & Gift has been dubbed as the place to be for visitors and exhibitors alike. The event presents the ideal opportunity to kick start your A/W buying to stay ahead of the competition and curate a one-of-a-kind edit. With over 500 brands joining us for this edition (of which 25% will be exhibiting for the first time), buyers will be absolutely spoiled for choice by Home & Gift’s unparalleled selection of products from across the lifestyle spectrum.
Home & Gift is far more than your average trade show, it is a place where people come together to share ideas, make new connections, and build relationships that last beyond the event. The show’s organisers have worked hard to create an environment that fosters genuine interaction and networking – with a wealth of social events to choose from, including Sundowners on Sunday, G&Ts on the lawn, along with the legendary Show Party, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to relax, unwind, and enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Harrogate.
