Hale Events and The Giftware Association will once again be joining forces to start the show season with the first real-world show of 2022.
This will be Giving & Livingâ€™s first physical event since 2020, thanks to Covid, and will welcome some exciting changes and new exhibitors. Giving & Living has embarked on a journey of digital changes and virtual shows to help the industry through the past year.
â€œItâ€™s great to be chatting to so many optimistic and positive buyers, who canâ€™t wait for the show.â€ says Hale MD Mike Anderson. â€œWeâ€™re lucky to be one of the first shows in 2022, where buyers can get a head start and be first in the queue for the latest ranges. With the South West set fair for another busy summer â€“ stock is flying off the shelves and thereâ€™s an air of positivity building!â€
To mark this return to live shows, The Giftware Association and Hale events have partnered up to run an exclusive competition at the Giving & Living show. The Giftware Association team will be judging the Best Show Stand and the Best New Product. Both winners will be awarded trophies, as well as a stand voucher worth Â£500, which they can use towards the 2023 show, plus free Gift of the Year entries.
â€œWe are excited as ever to be returning to Giving & Living in person this year and starting off the year with a fantastic regional show”Sarah Ward, Giftware Association CEO,
