LaunchPad Goes Live For 2023!

Posted by Rachel Westall on 13 December 2022

For the past six years London Stationery Show has proudly championed emerging businesses who are looking for their big break into the industry and 2023 will be of no exception. LaunchPad is back and on the hunt for new and unique businesses to shine a spotlight on. The competition gives six small business owners the opportunity to exhibit their products alongside top brands in the industry at the next edition of London Stationery Show, taking place from 16th-17th May at the Business Design Centre. As a specialist trade show attracting the UK’s biggest retailers and most influential buyers in the paper, arts and crafts, writing instruments, and greeting cards sectors, this is a fantastic opportunity for emerging brands to meet buyers with real purchasing power.
