Countdown to Pulse

Retailers can now secure their free tickets to London trade show Pulse, taking place from May 15-17 at Olympia.

Described by organiser Clarion Events as ‘the definitive event for trend-leading giftware, modern living and retail insight,’ Pulse promises buyers the opportunity to source thousands of design-led products from more than 500 brands.

The products are curated by a panel of design and trend experts including ‘London Evening Standard’ design writer Katie Law; fashion trend forecaster Claire Foster, stylist and author Sania Pell; luxury brand writer and editor Rachel Ward, and trend agency Unique Style Platform.

Autumn/Winter 2016/17 design and fashion trends to be spotted at Pulse include Maximalist, Retro Romantic, Coastal Simplicity, Modernist and many more.

Visitors can also plan their shopping list ahead of the show with Pulse Unseen, a new online product gallery showcasing the latest product launches.

Each month, over 10,000 retail buyers visit the Pulse website to browse through product images of their favourite brands and discover new ones.

Pulse show director Louise Wallace commented: “It’s the perfect place to see new products first and buyers can contact Pulse exhibitors throughout the year.

“There are so many cutting edge, stand-out brands at Pulse that deciding who to see can be a daunting prospect for both new and returning visitors.

“Pulse Unseen really helps to make this process easier as it allows buyers to regularly check who’s launching what and get a feel for a particular brand before coming to the show.

“It’s also a great way to keep track of launches from numerous brands in one place throughout the year, so you’ll be able to see trend patterns appearing and make more informed purchasing decisions.”

Industry experts’ views also appear on Pulse Unseen. So buyers will be able to discover what Katie Law is coveting this season, read top picks from Claire Foster, and check out Sania Pell’s wish list.

Claire said: “Pulse Unseen is a great way for visitors and buyers to get a head start on their buy for the season. Being able to see the latest products from key exhibitors, highlighted with the ‘Editor’s Picks’, is invaluable and adds more validation to product choices.”
