Clarion Events has confirmed that Top Drawer will return to a live format for its A/W21 edition at Olympia London from 12-14 September. The show will reunite design-led brands, buyers and designers for a curated buying opportunity that includes housewares and homewares, alongside gifts and crafts.
The Clarion team has extensively surveyed its community of leading retail buyers and interior designers – an astounding 82% of which said they intend to attend in September.
Zoë Bonser, portfolio director said: “Over the past 12 months, we remained committed to providing our network of incredible buyers and brands with opportunities to connect, be inspired, and trade, which is what they have turned to Top Drawer for, for more than 30 years. We saw some amazing success stories through our digital iterations of the show, however, for the full experience, we know just how important it is for buyers to see, try and feel products in person too. In terms of sourcing, networking and discovery, there’s a lot of exciting work happening behind the scenes to revolutionise these experiences for our audience, and we can’t wait for our community to be reunited for this exhilarating new chapter for Top Drawer and retail.”
She continued: “We are delighted to be returning to Olympia London in September and will continue to work in partnership with the Association of Events Organisers (the AEO), who is liaising directly with the government, to ensure the safest and most successful event for our community.”
Home exhibitors at the A/W21 edition of Top Drawer include: Also Home, Designed in Colour, Forma House, Garden Trading, Kikkerland, PR Home and Raine & Humble.
