We are an island nation that loves the seaside – not one of us lives more than 70 miles from the coast and we make over 70 million trips a year to enjoy it. Returning home, we always bring mementos and gifts, making the market for coastal themed products enormous.
Giving & Living, based in the country’s most popular seaside region, is the show of choice for retail buyers from on or near the Coast, that are keen to order the very latest coastal merchandise to target the holidaymaker. Giving & Living has always had a fine selection of products ideal for this market and to emphasis this aspect even further, the show will have a new feature for 2017 – its very own Coastal Path. Whilst not as long as the 2,795 mile England Coast Path that is currently being created around our shores it will still take you to where you need to be to get your pick of the best coastal themed products for your customers.
It’s the ideal way to discover a treasure trove of unusual products, niche suppliers and fresh ideas that you might otherwise sail straight past. At every step along the way you’ll be able to see, touch, taste, smell, talk and listen – the surest way to find those unique items that your customers will absolutely love.
The 2017 show takes place at the Westpoint Exhibition Centre, Exeter, and runs from Sunday 15th January to Wednesday 18th January. With two halls to explore, and four days in which to do so, Giving & Living makes buying an enjoyable experience.
