Stationery Show Heading to Manchester

Stationery Show Heading to Manchester

The Stationery Show is going to Manchester in the Autumn. After the success of last week’s show in London, this new event will take place from 31st October – 1st November 2017.

Ocean Media, the New Owner for London Stationery Show has announced that this new trade show will take place at the Cotton Sheds, part of the Victoria Warehouse venue in Old Trafford.

Tim Willoughby, managing director of Ocean Media says:

“The Cotton Sheds are a great piece of Manchester’s history, which have been developed into a modern, industrial space that we can make our own”.

Whilst the London Stationery Show, now in its seventh year, reported its highest visitor numbers last week, 65% of visitors are from the South East.

By creating a new trade show in Manchester, with its excellent road and rail links, the show organisers expect a wide range of visitors from both the south and north of the country.

“The [London]show continues to grow and attract more support from the industry and interested buyers. We’ve had an excellent response from exhibitors wanting to book for next year, and strong interest in our new show, which will be based in Manchester,” added Willoughby.
