Linked InTwitterFacebook

London Stationery Show is open for entries for the fourth LaunchPad competition, which seeks to find the very best new stationery suppliers looking to break into the industry.


Winners receive a free stand to showcase their products at the 10th anniversary London Stationery Show, where they will find themselves alongside all the top brands in the industry.


Top industry names are chosen for the judging panel of LaunchPad, so their feedback on entries, and their selection for who goes on to receive a free exhibition stand, is well worth following.


The LaunchPad area of the London Stationery Show is where all the UK’s biggest retailers and top buyers go to find the next big thing in stationery.


Evan Lewis, founder of the ethical stationery business VENT for Change and a previous winner of LaunchPad, commented: “The recognition and exposure LaunchPad afforded us at such a crucial stage in our development was invaluable.


“The chance to meet retailers large and small face to face at such a targeted show has led to significant sales growth and distribution opportunities nationwide.”


Judges are on the look out for products they think are of real interest to the industry, and to the design-conscious consumers who love to buy stationery.


The LaunchPad competition 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.
  • Is able to send in a sample of their product, to reach the show team no later than 30 January 2020.


All interested stationery suppliers and designers can enter here. Don’t delay - closing date is 27 January 2020.
