The organisers of Home & Gift Buyers' Festival 2020 has announced the show will now be postponed to 2021 due to the ongoing disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic and the latest public health and government decisions.
The 2020 edition of Home & Gift will now take place on the 18th-21st July, 2021.
Kelly Grant, show director, stated, "Like many of you, all of us are devastated by the requirement to postpone Home & Gift for the first time in its 60-year history. Our absolute priority is to safeguard the health and welfare of all those involved in our events and, therefore, we acknowledge that this postponement is a necessity, given both the material and ongoing disruption caused by the current pandemic and the latest public health and government directions.
"The 2021 edition will now celebrate the 60th anniversary of Home & Gift and will be a special opportunity for the community to come together in better times. The show will combine all the exciting features planned for this year, including the highly anticipated 60th anniversary party, plus the 2021 edition's enhanced ShopTalk speaker programme, new sectors and even more key brands and buyers."
In a bid to keep the industry connected, Home & Gift will continue to provide resources and information, with virtual product launches, regular blog updates that include inspiring brand stories and expert advice.
