Source Home & Gift triples in size for September show

International sourcing platform, Source Home & Gift has revealed that its second show – which takes place from 3-6 September at Birmingham’s NEC – will triple in size, uniting nearly 450 global manufacturers who pride themselves on responsible manufacturing and sustainable production, with key retailers, brands, and contractors.

A successful inaugural Source Home & Gift in February welcomed over 5,000 attendees from retailers including Argos, Sainsbury, John Lewis, Natural History Museum, Dunelm, Fortnum & Mason, Lakeland, WHSmith, Wilko, The Walt Disney Company, DFS, Barnardo’s, Clintons, Quiz Clothing, The National Trust, Aldi, Avon Wildlife Trust and more, keen to source responsibly across categories including homewares, furniture, gifts, toys, textiles, packaging, stationery from recently audited overseas manufacturers, producers and artisans.

The show offered a global showcase for responsible manufacturing, and exhibitors from over 20 countries including Egypt, Pakistan, Ghana, Nepal, Singapore, Europe and the US, as well as dedicated country pavilions from China and three Indian pavilions.

September’s event will be even bigger with the show already triple the size of the first edition, bringing together nearly 450 global manufacturers from countries including the UK, China, India, Pakistan, Portugal, Philippines, Germany, Bangladesh, Ghana and Uganda.

“Source Home & Gift brings together the best responsible manufacturers at a time when the European buying community are looking to buy better and build direct relationships with new manufacturers and suppliers,” commented Suzanne Ellingham, director of sourcing at Source Home & Gift. “As the only international sourcing show of its kind in the UK, we set out to create a platform that offers global manufacturers with sustainable production methods, the opportunity to meet with key retailers, brands and contractors who care about how great products are made. This show does just that.

“We launched with 150 manufacturers in February, and I’m delighted that in September we will welcome over 450 manufacturers, showcasing over 15,000 products from exhibitors who have never shown before in Europe.”

The show features eight sectors including homewares, toys, stationery and greetings, gifts, furniture, textiles, technology and services and packaging.
