Home & Gift will be part of the Government’s Events Research Programme pilot.
Clarion Events has announced that following detailed discussions with the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, Public Health Bodies and Harrogate Convention Centre, the Home and Gift Buyers’ Festival & the Manchester Furniture Show in Harrogate has been selected to be part of a limited number of pilot events in the third phase of the Government Events Research Programme.
Under the ERP pilot conditions, there will be no restrictions on visitor numbers or social distancing requirements on any day of the event (July 18-21). All attendees will be required to certify either they have had two vaccinations at least two weeks prior to attending or a negative NHS Lateral Flow Test at least 48hrs before attending. The consent required from all participants to opt in to the Event Research programme and NHS Test and Trace will be sent to all registered buyers and exhibitors individually.
Health and safety is paramount and remains our number one priority. A comprehensive Health and Safety document with FAQs for the event can be found here.
Paul Hooker, Commercial Director from Joe Davies said, “At Joe Davies, we can’t wait to attend Harrogate Home & Gift. After such a long break from exhibitions we are all very excited to meet our customers again and launch our new range.”
Home & Gift visitor registration is open and is on par with previous years, with key names confirming their attendance, and hotel stays as part of our VIP hosted buyer programme. Show Director, Russell Rule said, “With the backing of the government, public health bodies, and our key customers we can see that the appetite and enthusiasm are there for an in-person buying and selling event. There is great excitement from both exhibitors and visitors to reconnect in Harrogate to celebrate our 60th Anniversary!”
