Organisers cancel Stationery Show Manchester 2018

Stationery Show Manchester 2018 will not be staged this year organisers have confirmed.

A tough retail market, cautious buyers and uncertain suppliers has led to the decision not to run what would have been just the second edition of the stationery show based in Manchester, aimed at attracting buyers from the midlands and the north.

The organising team, which also runs the well-established stationery show that takes place every April in London, has decided to focus its efforts on Stationery Show London 2019.

“We feel the level of uncertainty in the market is too high to expect our exhibitors to risk supporting a new show. We appreciate the trust and support of those companies who had committed to supporting our Manchester show, and we will ensure all of them are recognised accordingly,” said event manager Hazel Fieldwick.
