Gibsons to host its own virtual trade and showcase event for February 2021

Gibsons is to host its own virtual trade event for 2021, the UK jigsaw puzzles and games specialist has confirmed, in a move to reassure customers concerned about the increasing number of trade shows cancelled or rescheduled next year.

The virtual show will take the form of an online conference that will give buyers the opportunity to partake in a private showcase of Gibsons’ new product releases, have one-to-one meetings with the team and confirm listings for the year.

The event will be held on Monday 1st to Friday 5th February 2021 to ensure that it does not clash with any existing trade events.

“None of us could have foreseen the current situation and we are truly disappointed that we won’t be able to catch up with everyone face-to-face in the new year,” said Kate Gibson, managing director.

“We hope our week-long drop-in event will complement other shows that may still run. We have lots of exciting things planned and can’t wait to share them with our customers and showcase our range of great new products for 2021.”

Gibsons will be releasing more information about the format of the show and the booking platform in the coming weeks.  If you are interested in signing up for more information about the event, please email marketing@gibsonsgames.co.uk.
