Cleere Scamell, show director, says “We are always looking at ways to make life at The Home & Gift Buyers’ Festival easier for everyone. Building on the easier layout introduced last year, we are adding another entrance point adjacent to the ever popular Design Point campus, creating the easiest-ever arrival experience.“

He adds, “Our aim is to make choosing the very best in design-led and everyday essential products as enjoyable an experience as it should really be. Despite this year’s show already proving to be more crammed with new exhibitors than for many years, we have managed to squeeze in an enhanced Great Northern Retail Forum and more social events. A visit to Harrogate also offers a rare chance to catch up with friends, colleagues and grow supplier relationships, learn from the experts and develop new business ideas – it all adds up to an exceptional buying experience.”
