This year’s event takes place on May 16 and May 17 at the Business Design Centre in Islington. Registration is now open for the show.

London Stationery Show event director Alex Butler commented: “It’s wonderful to see so many suppliers engage with this year’s campaign, and I can’t wait to see how retailers interpret each of the daily hashtags in their own stores. It’s a privilege to be a part of such an important campaign which gets more people writing.”
