  • What trade credentials do I need to attend the Retail Quarter?

    Reed Gift Fairs is a TRADE ONLY event for the Gift, Homewares and Retail industries. Admission is free upon completion and validation of the registration process. Gift Industry Card’s (GIC) are no longer valid and you will now need to update your registration on an annual basis – giving you access to all fairs for that calendar year.

    If you wish to re-register now just use your previous GIC number and click here.

    For any new registrations or re-registrations we recommend you pre-register online prior to the fair to avoid any on-site queues. The organiser Reed Exhibitions reserves the right to refuse admission at their discretion.
