After running an online version of the Giving & Living home & gift trade show in 2021, show organisers Hale Events have announced that it will be returning in 2022 as both a physical and an online event. The physical show will take place from 16-18 January at Westpoint, Exeter, whilst the online show will be available from 9 – 11 May.
Kickstart your trading year with the physical January show. As this was unable to take place in 2021, pent-up demand for new products should see strong buying at the event, which has a particular focus on Gifts and Home products for the coast and tourism market. After a busy 2021 summer, with increased tourist numbers in the South West, Giving & Living is timed for retailers to stock up and to discover new products ready for the 2022 season.
After Easter and the early Bank Holiday, Giving & Living ONLINE will take place, with two thirds of the exhibitors from the 2021 online event set to return. It’s an opportunity for suppliers to connect with customers, to show off new ranges and pick up new customers, who are either too far away or unable to attend the show in person. It’s very affordable, perfect for those who want to dip their toes in tradeshow waters but aren’t ready to make the leap to book a stand at a physical show. It also provides buyers the chance to meet exhibitors they might never see otherwise, without having to travel. Organisers says Giving & Living ONLINE will complement the January event, opening up the show to a far wider audience.
