Pulse London 2016 – Highlights & Discoveries

Pulse London is a Trade only Event for trendleading giftware, modern living and retail insight. Over 500 Exhibitors in a variety of Categories including Home, Beauty, Fashion, Gifts, Ceramics, Jewellery, Stationary and more.

We visited the Exhibition on its first day which turned out to be a quiet Sunday afternoon, likely due to the warm sunny weather. A colourful exhibition hall was the first sign of a wide range of exciting brands and products, mostly presented directly by who makes them.
