With over 58 years under its belt, Home & Gift Buyers' Festival is one of the UK’s oldest and still the most enjoyable gathering of buyers and brands!

Heritage

The show was originally launched in the 60's and over the years has stood the test of time and challenges. Many of our exhibitors have been attending the show for years. As Harrogate continues to be the flagship event of the giftware industry.

Throughout the years the show has grown and developed from strength to strength. Through recessions to challenging retail markets we strive on to bring you hundreds of exhibitors, thousands of brands and tens of thousands of brand new products; this really is the show of the year!

We mix business and pleasure at Home & Gift...

H&G really is a show like no other where you can find exceptional products and have a great deal of fun at a uniquely social trade show. H&G provides the opportunity to see the latest in giftware against a backdrop of British summer at it's best.

Home & Gift Buyers' Festival is renowned for being the industry's favourite show, mixing business with pleasure. Days are filled with buying and evenings with socialising and networking in the beautiful Harrogate surroundings. 

The perfect time...

Home & Gift Buyers' Festival has become a showcase for the very best in giftware. It has supporters on all sides of the industry, who cite it's relaxed atmosphere and opportunity to socialise easily with clients and competitors alike as the key to it's success.

In an industry such as giftware, hitting the market at the right time is vital. While February provides the tableware market with the key time to launch new designs in preparation for a year full of wedding lists; July provides manufacturers with a launchpad for Christmas gift lines. 

The perfect place...

Harrogate is a unique place to do business. With many of the other trade shows on the circuit concentrated in the South of the country, it provides Northern and Scottish buyers a valuable opportunity to seize up the latest releases without having to take large amounts of time away from their business. Harrogate's success, in part is down to the fact we offer something more to both sides of the industry and makes the process of exhibition-going a little more pleasurable.
Testimonials
  • It’s so important for us to be showcasing great British manufacturing here at the Home & Gift show. The footfall here is massive and it’s an opportunity for people to see the products, hear the story and for us to be able to show first-hand the quality of British manufacturing we have embraced here with the homeware and cooking range.

  • We love the relaxed and welcoming atmosphere at Harrogate. It’s a must for buyers and a showcase for Yorkshire hospitality. We always enjoy the whole show experience, seeing new faces and meeting with some of our regular suppliers in person.
