“It was great to be back at Spring Fair for the third consecutive year to live judge the shortlisted entries, and we could not have been happier with the area which allowed the products to shine and also receive the attention they deserve,” comments the GA’s PR and marketing manager Chris Workman. “The event was a resounding success, attracting attention throughout the show, not just from the judges but from visitors too, who were using the area as a stop off point to find the best new exciting products on offer.”

Adds Chris: “It was also great to hear about the traffic that our shortlisted exhibitors got to their stands through their products being on display in the GOTY judging area at an already bustling Spring Fair. Plus, excitingly, we also signed up a potential 80 new judges to next year’s awards from across the retail spectrum.”

Once again, The Giftware Association will also be announcing the winner of the Gift of the Year People’s Choice award which is judged by the general public,enabling everyone to vote for their favourite product across all GOTY categories.

As with previous years, The Giftware Association has opened the category up to all shortlisted products, and is hoping it will be its biggest year yet, with over 3000 votes already counted, “so there is still an opportunity for a shortlisted company to get through to become the third ever People’s Choice winner,” highlights Chris.
