The industry’s beloved buying event will be gracing the heart of Harrogate once again this summer from July 16 to July 19, with four jam-packed days of networking opportunities and thousands of new products to discover, from familiar names as well as exciting new brands.
Taking over the Harrogate Convention Centre and grounds of the DoubleTree by Hilton, this year’s edition of Home & Gift seeks to transport visitors back to the Summer of Love as it taps 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, attendees will be immersed in bold vibrant colours and timeless prints inspired by the 1960s throughout the show.
Spanning five halls and three Design Points, visitors will be able to explore everything from gifts and homeware to culinary infusions and statement accessories. An array of one-of-a-kind artisan products will also be showcased in the new Craft section, where buyers will be able to explore 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, and perfect timing ahead of the industry’s busiest buying season, Home & Gift presents the ideal opportunity to get a head start on your A/W offering to stay ahead of the competition and curate a one-of-a-kind edit. With more than 500 brands joining this edition (of which 25% will be exhibiting for the first time), buyers will be spoiled for choice by the exhibition’s selection of products from across the lifestyle spectrum.
More than your average trade show, Home & Gift 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, and G&Ts on the lawn, along with the Summer Party, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to relax, unwind, and enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Harrogate.
