The organiser of this year’s Pulse, London’s design-focused gift, homewares and lifestyle show, is reminding visitors that it is moving its timing from June to May.
Clarion Events says it has received positive feedback about the decision, which will allow retailers “to enjoy all the benefits that visiting Pulse has to offer one month earlier, offering a great opportunity to refresh stores and keep ahead of the retail game”.
Said show director Raj Gill: “Pulse’s unique new dateline for 2013 has enthused key buyers and suppliers alike, as it offers additional selling time mid-season, as well as more crucial planning time for Christmas.
“Historically, Pulse has always sat on this earlier dateline but moved back due to the bank holidays of recent years. With no interruptions in 2013, the new May date offers the potential for both retailers and suppliers to make gains that cannot be missed.”
Pulse brings together over 600 gift brands and design talents, with over 50% of all suppliers unique to the show. It will take place at Earl’s Court, London on May 12 to 14 2013.
