Following the new lockdown rules and continuing the Covid-19 uncertainty, Giving & Living, the South West's well known gift and home trade show, has been postponed to the spring of 2021. The show will now take place from Monday 10th May to Wednesday 12th May and will be held at Westpoint, Exeter. It will, as ever, be the place for buyers looking to stock up with the very latest trends in gifts and home accessories for the year ahead.
Mike Anderson, managing director of Hale Events, the show organisers says: "We are delighted to have secured these dates, which provide more than two months lead time before the summer season. We know how much our exhibitors and buyers are looking forward to getting back together face to face. These dates will allow businesses to trade though Easter and the early Spring, and attend with confidence to buy, after what will be a have been a very disrupted winter for us all."
Travel restrictions and uncertainty are deterring people from holidaying abroad, and domestic holidays are forecast to dominate over the next few years, as the after-shocks of the Covid virus continue to be felt around the world. The South West is set to be one of the leading UK destinations, and the summer showed how well it coped with increased tourist numbers.
Giving & Living has promised to provide a safe and friendly environment in which to do business, and showcase perfect products for retailers looking for new ideas, with the latest ranges of gifts, suitable for family and friends, or as souvenirs of the holidays they're able to enjoy.
