Emerald Expositions

Gift, Home & General Merchandise

We currently operate 13 trade shows within the Gift, Home & General Merchandise sector, which includes a broad range of consumer goods that are mostly utilized in and around the home. Our shows, which are primarily order-writing shows, focus on the furniture, home textiles, tabletop, gourmet housewares, decorative accessories, handcraft, gift, toys & novelties, and affordable fashion & footwear industries, as well as the kitchen and bathroom industry. Our shows are particularly important to participants in these industries, as each provides a many-to-many environment that enables a diverse group of highly fragmented attendees and exhibitors from all over the world to buy and sell a variety of products in a short period of time.
