THE FINALIST HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED

Yesterday, as you were aware, was our live judging day for Gift of the Year and the judges had a very hard time choosing the finalists with such amazing products on offer, but after a day of deliberation, the finalists were selected. To see if your products have made it through to the final selection please view the page here, or the list below.

The Winners and Highly Commended will be announced at a special awards ceremony on Sunday 2nd February at the Inspiring Retail Stage. The ceremony is free to attend and you don’t even need to be exhibiting at Spring Fair.

All finalists product’s will be displayed on a special Gift of the Year area on stand Hall 5A49 at Spring Fair.

Thank you once again for all those that entered and if your product wasn’t selected as a ‘finalist’, do not lose heart, your products were viewed by over 40 judges who are all buyers and key influencers from the industry, we saw many taking personal photographs for their own buying and selection decisions!

Whether you are a finalist or a shortlisted company the logos for you to use can be found here. If you are having difficulty with downloading these, then please let me know.

Once again thank you for your involvement in the Gift of the Year Competition and congratulations to the finalists.
