Each edition continues to attract an international audience of industry professionals seeking unique and high-quality products that will captivate their customers and give them a point of difference from competitors.
This September’s Top Drawer is set to impress with an extraordinary lineup of suppliers from both the UK and around the globe, with exhibitors hailing from as far afield as Australia, Chile and Japan! Buyers will have the opportunity to explore an extensive range of products and new season designs, with notable exhibitors including Abrams & Chronicle, Aery, Bookspeed, CHALK, Ginger Ray, Kikkerland, Lifeguard Press + Ban.do, LIGA, Lisa Angel, Morgan Wright, My Doris, Ohh Deer, Roka London, Suck UK and Wrap, among many others.

Through the Launchpad sector, Top Drawer also aims to put fresh, emerging talent firmly in the spotlight, providing them with opportunities to meet high-calibre buyers and helping them begin their wholesale journey. The designers who are hand-selected to be part of Launchpad always bring quirky, unique pieces that are bold and eye-catching - perfect for retailers looking for something different. The show is also excited to continue its partnership with the University of Arts London, which will showcase hand-selected products from talented recent graduates who are eager to increase their brand exposure.
Across the show, retailers can expect to discover a carefully curated assortment of cutting-edge products - from home decor and must-have gifts, to stationery and seasonal accessories - that are sure to inspire in the lead-up to Christmas 2023. Beyond this, Top Drawer also offers a chance to forge lasting connections and gain valuable insights through the RetailFest seminars; with a lineup of brilliant speakers soon to be announced, these sessions will cover topics to help businesses flourish in the upcoming months, including discussions on how to create eye-catching social media videos, understand the Metaverse, using AI, mastering digital marketing and much more!
Once again visitors can expect to be inspired with the return of The Better Trends Company who will be showcasing the leading trends for the upcoming season. These installations have become a staple of Top Drawer, enticing buyers and designers into their eye catching display of soon-to-be-in vogue products. Buyers can use this inspiration to shape their new collection, while designers can see how and where their own products fit.
Jam-packed with unmissable product launches, industry insights, and thought-provoking conversations, Top Drawer Autumn / Winter 2023 promises to be the event to discover this September!
