LaunchPad, the competition to find and support new stationery suppliers looking to break into the stationery industry, will return to London Stationery Show 2020. To be in with a chance of winning a free exhibition stand at the 2020 show, taking place from 21 - 22 April, entrants need to put their idea and a product sample forward.
LaunchPad gives winners the chance to showcase their products at London Stationery Show, alongside the top brands in the industry.
The competition will be judged by leading names and retailers from the stationery sector who will be looking for products they think will grab the interest of the industry and all the stationery loving consumers out there.
LaunchPad is open to any company which, or individual who:
• Has not previously appeared at Stationery Shows in London or Manchester
• Has the rights to sell the featured product
• Does not currently sell the featured product through any UK national retail accounts or distributors in the stationery retail sector
2020 marks London Stationery Show’s 10th birthday and LaunchPad winners will receive a free display space at the show, a listing on the show’s website and in the Show Guide. All winners receive exposure to the UK’s leading retailers and suppliers visiting the show, as well as free PR and marketing support from the show team.
Bristol-based sustainable stationery company VENT for Change, who was a winner in 2019, is returning as a fully-fledged exhibitor in 2020. Other notable successes include Clipmatic, Paper Mirchi, Back Pocket Notebook, Peace & Blessings and Treewise Pencils.
The closing date for entries is 27th January 2020 and the entry form can be found on the show website here – www.stationeryshowlondon.co.uk/launchpad
