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 & Living’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.
“It’s great to be chatting to so many optimistic and positive buyers, who can’t wait for the show.” says Hale MD Mike Anderson. “We’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 – stock is flying off the shelves and there’s an air of positivity building!”
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 £500, which they can use towards the 2023 show, plus free Gift of the Year entries.
