Thinking of You Week Wall

The Greeting Card Association (GCA) is working with show organiser Clarion to spread the joy of sending and receiving cards.

A Thinking of You Week display will be located in the Greeting and Stationery area. 

The double-sided wall display will display thinking of you cards designed by GCA members. There will also be a post box created by N Smith and 500 greeting cards that have been designed by Raspberry Blossom and printed by Graphite, with envelopes donated by Enveco.  Visitors and exhibitors will be encouraged to write and post their cards at the show in the post box. Clarion will arrange for the cards posted to be sent by 2nd class post. 

Mark Callaby, MD, Ohh Deer and Adriana Lovesy (recently promoted to membership and marketing manager at the GCA) will be hosting a GCA Top Drawer Local event at The Hand & Flower pub located opposite the Top Drawer venue from 6pm on Monday September 11. Publishers, suppliers and retailers are all welcome to join them for a drink.

  • Top Drawer Autumn will also feature an exclusive winners showcase, on stand 220 from the Gift of the Year 2023 competition.

This year’s winners showcase at Top Drawer will shine a spotlight on the trend-setting products that have earned the coveted Gift of the Year accolades. Attendees can expect to be inspired by a diverse range of gift items across 20 categories including Home Fragrance, Kitchen and Dining and Food and Drink.

“We are excited to partner with Top Drawer to present the Gift of the Year winners showcase for 2023,” said Chris Workman, PR & marketing manager of Gift of the Year. “This showcase not only celebrates the creativity and ingenuity of the winners but also serves as a source of inspiration for the entire gifting community. It’s an opportunity for attendees to explore the latest trends, and discover unique products and brands. It also allows buyers to purchase from us at the show, and we will send those orders back to the companies, creating an extra funnel for sales.”

Show organiser Clarion said: ”As proud members of both the Greeting Card and the Giftware associations, we’re delighted to host the Thinking of You Week initiative and the Gift of the Year Awards at Top Drawer this September. Visitors to the show this year will be able to reignite the art of heartfelt communication by sending cards to friends and family directly from the event, and to also discover all the exceptional winning products from this year’s Gift of the Year Awards as well.’’

Top Drawer takes place at London Olympia from September 10-11.
