Celebrating its tenth unmissable year, PG Live 2018 is proud to present the greatest collection of greeting cards in the world.
Now just two weeks away, this year’s PG Live will be an inspiring celebration of original design and creative talent. A packed schedule will be waiting for visitors to this year’s show, with over 270 exhibitors currently preparing their collections for the sold out event.
Taking place from Tuesday 5 – Wednesday 6 June 2018, the unique trade show will be bringing the international greeting card industry together under one roof; spotting trends, making friends and placing orders.
With greeting cards featuring in the top five best-selling categories for party retailers in Progressive Party’s 2017 Retail Barometer and UK card sales coming in at £1.526bn in 2016, PG Live 2018 is the perfect platform for anyone looking to complement their partyware ranges with exciting new card collections.
Thousands of original, creative cards will be on display, from leading brands and boutique publishers through to brand new artists, while party favourites such as Gemma International, Pioneer Europe, Neviti and Mask-arade will also be adding some colour to the show.
Returning for its sixth year, Mask-arade will be showcasing brand new The Incredibles face masks, just in time for the movie release. “We will be advising everyone to get their orders in as this is going to be a hot property,” said Ray Duffy, commercial director. “We will also be showing our popular photo party props and inviting everyone to take a selfie with our Goggle Eyes, Buga Lugs and Chinless Wonders. We are really looking forward to the show!”
“Cards and stationery items are fairly new to us so we are exhibiting at PG Live for the first time this year,” said Neviti’s co-founder Tracey Cooper. “We are very excited to experience the show and meet new customers.”
As the most sociable show in the business, PG Live also makes it easy for buyers to have fun and focus on the cards. Fabulous free refreshments, a complimentary lunch (sponsored by cutting-edge card retailer Scribbler) and free drinks party after the show on Tuesday mean visitors can concentrate on taking advantage of all those show-only offers.
