Home & Gift

Registration is now open for the 2024 edition of the Home & Gift Buyers’ Festival, which returns to the Harrogate Convention Centre and grounds of the DoubleTree by Hilton Majestic Hotel from July 21 to July 24. 

Once again Home & Gift will showcase hundreds of top brands across a new, expanded footprint, hosting more than 15% more exhibitors than 2023. Visitors will find a show of two halves, with Halls A, B, C and M of the Convention Centre packed to the rafters with sectors including Gift and Home, Jewellery and Fashion, and the Food Emporium. 

Buyers will also benefit from an updated layout in the hotel grounds for the Design Points, where they can explore Design-led Gift and Home. A new entrance at the Rose Gate will lead visitors to the relocated Design Point 4 and Alfresco Bistro, and then down to Design Point 3 and an extended Design Point 1, which is set to host an additional 10% more stands in 2024. 

With the larger footprint, visitors will be treated to the biggest and best exhibitor line-up in years, with hundreds of new and returning brands to choose from. More than 40% of the 2024 exhibitors weren’t present in 2023, and 32% of them are making their show debut, ensuring that there’s newness at every turn! 

Exclusively Show 2024

“The Home & Gift team has worked incredibly hard to deliver a third successive year of double-digit growth, and we look forward to showcasing more than 15% more brands again this July”

Show manager David Westbrooke

Notable brands returning to the event after a number of years of absence include the likes of Aery, Belly Button Designs, Elizabeth Scarlett, Gifted Wholesale, Half Moon Bay, Jackie Brazil, La De Da Living, Price’s Patent Candles, Widdop and Co. and Upper Canada.

Speaking of Widdop and Co.’s return, CEO and owner Stephen Illingworth explained: “We are thrilled to be back at Harrogate for the first time in eight years. This show was a central feature on our summer calendar for so long and as the market has changed, The industry needs a strong summer event to launch products and meet people. Harrogate is the only platform at this time of year for this to happen, and we look forward to supporting it.” 

Exhibiting alongside these suppliers are hundreds of other industry favourites, including Bomb Cosmetics, Captivate Brands, CHALK, Creative Tops & Kitchen Craft, D&X, Designworks, Enesco, Forever England, Forma House, Giftware Trading, House of Disaster, Joe Davies, Kikkerland, Lagoon Group, Marmalade of London, Miss Shorthair, Ohh Deer, PoM, Powell-Craft, Langs, Roka London, Talking Tables, The Art File, Toasted Crumpet, and Zelly – many of which are exhibiting exclusively at Home & Gift, meaning you won’t see them elsewhere this season!

Home & Gift has also added more than 150 brand-new suppliers to the event this year, including The Little Dog Laughed, Allied Imports, Arnold Willis & Co, ASOBU, Bothy Threads, Cadenza Italy, Jardinopia, Robinvalley, Soctopus, and Trampoline. 

The Little Dog Laughed managing director Gavin Smith commented on the importance of the dateline: “In recent years, sourcing, producing and delivering products has become a bit of a lottery. We decided to have all our newness ready to show mid-year, so customers can be confident that stock will be with them for the all-important start of Q4. It was time to change things up exhibition-wise, and the decision was taken to make Home & Gift our only UK show for 2024.”

Well-known for the networking opportunities that accompany product sourcing, Home & Gift is set to offer a range of social gatherings and facilitate connections away from the show floor. After the show finishes on Sunday, visitors and exhibitors can mingle, connect and raise a glass as the winner of the hotly anticipated People’s Choice category of the Gift of The Year Awards is announced during the Sundowners drinks. Monday night also sees the return of the Home & Gift Show Party, and visitors can enjoy a ‘Pimms on the Lawn’ on Tuesday after the show.

For the second consecutive year, The Better Trends Company has curated the show’s Trends Feature, which is located at the front of Hall M in the Convention Centre. It will present three key trends for the Autumn/Winter season which retailers can incorporate into their new collections as they source at the show. 

In addition, The Better Trends Company has designed Home & Gift’s look and feel again, reflecting a ‘Sun Chaser’ theme centred around al fresco dining and easy-breezy summer days. The team will be on hand at the show to guide visitors through the season’s trends, so they can source their new collections accordingly.

Show manager David Westbrooke said: “The Home & Gift team has worked incredibly hard to deliver a third successive year of double-digit growth, and we look forward to showcasing more than 15% more brands again this July – giving buyers even more choice as they look for their next best seller. Visitors will notice a significantly larger footprint and an exciting new layout for the Design Points. With hundreds of brands exhibiting in 2024 that weren’t here last year, Harrogate is the place to be this summer!”
