Representing the largest offering of giftware, design-led gifts, houseware and greeting cards, the exhibition attracted buyers looking for insights into marketing trends as well as those sourcing new products.
New to the show this year were a craft demonstration area, a lifestyle zone, a creative Britain trail and an area devoted to high-end contemporary home collections.
Of the Home Accents feature, event director Roz McGuinness said: "This exciting component within the already successful interiors sector of the show is proving a dynamic new offering. It is a perfect launch platform for smaller companies, while larger contemporary suppliers can adopt a more specialised view to arranging meetings with high-end home retail buyers."
Around 5,000sq m were taken up by Brands of China, in which 190 enterprises were showcased having been selected by the Ministry of Commerce of China.
The Royal Parks and Cambridge-based designer Quintessential launched two ranges of textile gifts and accessories at the event. Quintessential produced the ranges featuring the Royal Parks' bespoke Best of British and London Silhouette designs.
The gifts include a range of bags, purses, suitcase tags, bunting, kitchen textiles and picnic blankets.
