In addition to London Stationery Show’s tenth anniversary show being postponed by show organisers Ocean Media to September, greetings card trade show Progressive Greetings Live has announced its 2020 event will take place on 2-3 September at the Business Design Centre. The show was originally due to take place 2-3 June.
PG Live’s co-show director Warren Lomax told PG Buzz: “While the absolute top priorities right now have to be on keeping everyone safe and being there for each other, meaning that the June timing of PG Live was untenable, what has come across loud and clear from those in the greeting card community is that they wanted us to find a later date for the show, rather than cancel it for this year.”
The industry response to the postponement of PG Live has been positive. Karen Wilson and Claire Williams of Paper Salad said: “We are so happy that we have a new date planned in for PG Live – it is like a ‘ray of sunshine’ giving us all something to look forward to in these uncertain times.”
