The show recorded the highest number of entries for its Stationery Awards, which this year topped just over 400.

“The 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,” Tim Willoughby, managing director at Ocean Media Group, which also owns the National Stationery Week program.

This year’s show, held at London’s Business Design Centre, introduced a LaunchPad competition to help aspiring stationery designers and companies get started in the industry. This resulted in 12 winners being given free stands at the show.

The London Stationery Show and Stationery magazine have been acquired by Ocean Media Group, a UK-based provider of exhibitions, events, awards and specialist publications.

Founded by Chris Leonard-Morgan, the London Stationery Show has trebled in size since its launch in 2010 and has been the main driver of the UK’s national Stationery Week programme.

The 2017 show is on course to continue its upward trajectory with more than 85 per cent of the 2016 stand space already booked.

David Watt, CEO at Ocean Media, says: “This is an exciting opportunity to add two more market leading brands, and a new sector, to the Ocean portfolio. The London Stationery Show has captured the imagination of both mainstream and niche retailers whilst stimulating consumer demand for quality stationery products. Ocean believes it can help foster the sector and help the London Stationery Show continue to grow to meet the demands of this vibrant industry.”

Leonard-Morgan will remain in place as an advisor on the show alongside the existing team.

The 2017 London Stationery Show will take place at the Business Design Centre from 25 to 26 April and National Stationery Week from 24 to 30 April.
