Top Drawer returns to Olympia in September with a fresh focus on gift foods, Japanese design and eco-friendly products.
Following its success last year, and as the market for gift foods continues to rise, the show will once again be hosting the FoodLovers gift food area in the National Hall.
New to the exhibition is an insight into the latest designs from Japan, presented in the National Hall in a new feature area, Japanesey. Ten designers will showcase their products, encompassing the energy and originality of contemporary Japanese design.
Show organiser Clarion Retail has also appointed TV presenter and interior designer Oliver Heath as eco-consultant on all of the Clarion Retail London shows (Top Drawer Autumn and Spring and Pulse). He will vet exhibitors’ eco product ranges and award an Eco Stamp to those who fulfil the criteria.
Top Drawer Autumn takes place in the National and Grand Halls at Olympia, and will provide a last opportunity for Christmas 2007 buying and set the scene for spring/summer 2008. The show features over 800 UK and international design-led exhibitors, displaying products including gifts, home accessories, china, glassware and gift food. The show takes place September 9 to 11.
