Retail Advisory Group for Stationery Show
| 25 September, 2014
The London Stationery Show has formed a Retail Advisory Group of leading buyers to work with it on the future direction and content of the exhibition which is now in its fifth year.
Next year’s exhibition will be the biggest yet with over two hundred different suppliers and brands from around the world.
The members of the new group are:
Bureau Direct: Jo Irons, Buying Director
John Lewis: Clare Northwood, Buyer, Stationery
Paperchase: Frances Burkle, Head of Buying
Ryman: David Coventry, Senior Buyer
Sainsbury’s: Alexandra Miles, Buyer Stationery
Henri Davis, Independent Retail Advisor
“This is another exciting first for the Stationery Show” says organiser Chris Leonard-Morgan. “The purpose of the Advisory Group is to harness the experience and good will which exists towards the show of a representative group of leading retailers by formalising their input to ensure that the exhibition continues to meet their needs. We view all buyers at the show as VIPs, and want them to view it as their event.”
“It’s a real plus for the industry to have something like the Stationery Show, it’s great to have stationery all under one roof” says Alexandra Miles, Buyer, Stationery, Sainsbury’s.
Next year’s London Stationery Show takes place on Tuesday 28 – Wednesday 29 April 2015 at the Business Design Centre and will again be part of National Stationery Week (27 April - 3 May).
