About Stationery Show London

People the world over, not just in the UK, have a real affection for stationery and the written word. It is this affection for the tactile, hands-on world of writing and paper products that stimulates on-going interest in the sector which has seen it evolve from a functional product into a lifestyle accessory for all ages.

The first dedicated stationery show took place in 2011, evolving out of a more general office products and stationery trade event. Since then Stationery Show London has grown every year, attracting more exhibitors and visitors to the dynamic and resilient market it represents.


Today, the show provides a showcase where stationery products come alive and the industry comes together; where the biggest UK and international brands sit alongside the start-ups, and buyers come to enjoy the fresh thinking and can-do attitude of this enterprising, fashion-led industry.
