Don’t we all just love it when an unusual piece of stationery comes our way, be it a fancy pen, diary, calendar or colourful sticky notes? Nothing can replace the pleasure of possessing these stationery items. So get ready to grab some fun items at the upcoming exhibitions in the city.
While you can shop for collector pens and notepads at the Stationery World Expo 2016, do indulge in the furniture at Office Expo and souvenirs at Gifts World Expo.
While stationery expo will take place for the first time, the other two shows are already popular among Delhiites. “Last year stationery was a part of the Gifts Expo, but owing to high demands, we are organising it as a separate expo this time,” says Himani Gulati, director of the expo. She adds, “The stationery expo will display paper products, office supplies, educational supplies, notebooks, diaries, writing Instruments and even art supplies.”
The three-day long exhibitions will be held simultaneously, to provide numerous options for collectors to indulge in. Along with the regular articles and stationery of daily use, there will also be many products which have been designed using latest technology. From eco-friendly pencils, made of paper, to customised products, the expo will surprise you with its new inventions.
Visitors can also see handicrafts from across the country, of which some are rare collections from Jaipur and Moradabad. “In the Gifts Expo we will have six sections - home décor, trophies, handicrafts, electric gadgets, time pieces and general gifts. Whereas Office Expo will showcase a variety of office furniture, automation, lighting, technology, supplies, office management services an office spaces,” adds Gulati.
These varieties are available in budgeted options as well as at high-end prices. And the best part is that the exhibition isn’t open for just corporates or businesspersons but to all, without any entry free. “Last year, around 20,000 visitors flocked the exhibition. We are expecting 25,000 this year,” says Gulati.
