Later this month, the London Stationery Show is set to make its big return. Taking place from 24 – 25 April, this is the eighth incarnation of the event and promises to be the largest yet, set to showcase more than 150 exhibitors at the Business Design Centre in Islington.
Tonic Studios, Scribble Geeks, Dingbat Notebooks, Paper Lounge, Crafters Companion, Daler Rowney, Sloane Stationery and TapePal are just a handful of exhibitors making their debuts at the show, joining popular returnees such as Collins Debden, Faber-Castell, Stabilo International and uni-ball.
Situated in the networking-hive that is London, the show will offer a ‘Live Talks’ programme, each lasting 30 minutes on the Gallery Level. Scarlet Opus’ trends translator Phil Pond will be at hand to wax lyrical, alongside Alex Schlagman of savethehighstreet.org and The Paper Library’s Debbie Wigglesworth.
These sessions are spread across the two days and will also feature graphologist and coach Christina Strang, editor of Greetings Today Tracey Bearton, retail expert Rebecca Saunders and news commentator and analyst Michael Weedon.
2018’s edition of the show will also introduce that all-new Stationery Trend Hub, which will help you learn more about ‘on trend’ products identified by forecasting agency Scarlet Opus.
