London Stationery Show attracts world’s top brands

The London Stationery Show continues to attract the industry’s leading international and British suppliers and new entrants to the market. It is the United Kingdom’s stationery event of the year, and is on target for its fifth consecutive year of growth.

90 percent of last year’s exhibition space has already been sold and many new names have been added for next year’s show including Pomegranate Europe, Pilot Pen, GMC, Daler Rowney, MUM’s Office, Quire Collections, Toad Diaries, Waldmann Pens, Van Moose and Perfectly Wrapped Presents.

“With an ever increasing list of exhibitors and brands and a buoyant market, the London Stationery Show makes it easy for retailers and buyers to source from the biggest range of writing and paper products anywhere in the UK, all in one place, and visit some of London’s finest stationery stores,” said event director Chris Leonard-Morgan. “The buyers love it.”

“A number of exciting new overseas bookings to date include E4MA Design from Nigeria, Ballograf from Sweden, Ecozz from Czech Republic, Nunuco Design from Finland, Pensan from Turkey, Kore and Il Papiro from Italy and Shark Stationery from Pakistan.  It will be great to see the mix of styles and designs that these companies bring to the show.”

Companies from more than 40 countries have exhibited at the show in the last five years, with visitors attending from 35 countries in 2015.

Now in its sixth year, the London Stationery Show is dedicated to all things stationery including writing products, wrap, gift and social stationery, calendars and diaries, notebooks, storage and much more besides.

It is the go-to show for a large and growing number of leading stationery buyers and suppliers attracted by its product focus, the friendly feel-good atmosphere and that there are so many stationery products and brands from around the world, all in one place.
