Susan Lusted, Dalegarth Holiday Cottages 

"Home & Gift is a very convenient show for us. It is an ideal platform to get the very latest trends and find new, eye-catching products.”

Pamela Hun, Partner, catgotthecream

“...My time is precious and I can get everything I need for the coming season in one place at one time. A lovely environment, nice people and great business deals – what more do you want?”

Suzie Bull, Owner, Ziel Design for Living 

“…I’ve been coming to Home & Gift since 1982. The atmosphere is great - both buyers and sellers seem to enjoy the show like no other - the chic town of Harrogate is so welcoming to all who visit making this show more like a gathering of old friends - and the opportunity to do great business too!”

Diana Goddard, Gifts For You, Cumbria

"...I love Home & Gift because of the variety of product on offer. I source new suppliers and new products across all 6 show sectors and each year I leave having found something different. I am confident these newly sourced products will do well in the buying year ahead.”

Exhibitors love the show because... 

Caroline Gardner 

"Fantastic show! It has a great social buzz and has been really busy. Looking forward to next year already!"

Joe Lamont, Samuel Lamont & Sons 

“I absolutely love the relaxed and social atmosphere at Home & Gift. The pre-show marketing was fantastic and has allowed us to spend time with good quality buyers.”

Steve Davies, Managing Director, Joe Davies

“…Home & Gift is a show like no other – and in terms of timing it couldn’t be better. July is a key launch month for us and with 7,500+ products it is the ideal opportunity to show off our new lines. This year we have moved to Hall Q and it’s great to be in the centre of the action!”

The team love the show because...

Simon Kent, Director, HCC 

“...It has become an integral part of Harrogate’s summer over the years! We are proud to be part of the Home & Gift family and work with the town to ensure the warmest of welcomes for those attending this amazing show.”

Simon Marsh, Account Director, Arena Group

"…We get to build some wonderful structures in a year filled with air shows, summits and sports events. Over an entire month, we turn tennis courts and steep, grassy hills into air-conditioned marquees! Each year we try and add a little more to the show and the whole team love the welcoming Harrogate experience!”

Testimonials

  • Selfridges has visited Home & Gift for over 4 years. We visit to hunt for exciting new Christmas gifts, stationery, greetings cards and wrapping, along with catching up with our current suppliers and talking through their new ranges. The new trend driven areas that showcase new brands are my favourite parts of the show.

  • 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.

    Professional Chef, The Great British Exchange
  • 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.
