Gentle Reminder: Top Drawer Starts on 10th September 2023
As an industry insider, you've probably already marked your calendars for the upcoming Top Drawer event. But in case you haven't, here's a gentle reminder: Top Drawer, the must-attend rendezvous for tastemakers in the retail industry, starts on 10th September 2023.
This year's edition promises to be yet another grand spectacle at the Olympia Exhibition Centre in London. With a curated selection of over 750 exhibitors, the event is designed to tantalise your senses, inspire your creativity, and refresh your buying portfolio.
As a buyer, whether you hail from a department store, a garden centre, or work as an interior designer, Top Drawer is your golden ticket to discover design-led products and future retail trends. It's a unique opportunity to meet innovative suppliers and creators who can help you stay ahead of the curve.
For department store buyers, Top Drawer offers an array of distinctive brands that not only tell compelling stories but also prioritise profitable margins. As the retail landscape evolves, it's essential to stay attuned to changing customer behaviours, especially the rising demand for transparency and sustainable products.
Interior designers attending Top Drawer will find a treasure trove of products that marry long-lasting trends with signature styles. It's a platform where you can source new suppliers for the upcoming season and glean insights on digital marketing and social media strategies.
Garden centre buyers, often part of family-run enterprises, can find a wealth of UK brands offering interior accessories, greetings cards, candles, wellness products, toys, and giftable foods. Many of these brands are part of garden centre-specific buying groups, providing enhanced buying and negotiating power.
Likewise, for exhibitors, Top Drawer is a platform to showcase your most visionary designs to an audience of over 10,000 buyers. Remember, every piece you present is an opportunity to entice buyers representing a combined buying budget of £5bn, making Top Drawer a must-attend event.
But Top Drawer isn't just about buying and selling. It's a hub of learning and networking, with activities like RetailFest, which offers inspiring keynote presentations and insightful masterclasses, and Launchpad, a platform dedicated to new-to-market and undiscovered names in partnership with UAL.
