Spotted is Top Drawer’s curated showcase of market ready, design-based businesses new to the trade fair market, encompassing Top Drawer’s product sectors of Home, Gift, Fashion, Craft, Greetings & Stationery and Food.
Over the past eight years, the programme has helped to launch more than 200 small businesses and is now firmly established as one of the show’s main attractions.
All Spotted brands receive a three-year-plan discount programme and are also eligible to enter the Spotted Award: a prestigious prize judged by a panel of industry professionals given to the three most original, best designed and most promising brands in the showcase.
The winner’s prize is a free stand at Top Drawer Spring and the winner and two runners-up receive a series of mentoring sessions with key designers, retailers, brand consultants and PRs.
The Autumn/Winter 2018 edition of Top Drawer will be held from September 9 to September 11 at Olympia in London. For details, visit www.topdrawer.co.uk/spotted
