Calling all Gifted Exhibitors…..

Posted 04.11.21

Are you exhibiting at the Gifted Show in the RDS, Dublin from 1st to 5th Dec 2021, and making your products in Ireland? If so you can apply to feature in the Made Local Display at the show.

Presented by the Design & Crafts Council Ireland (DCCI), the area will highlight Irish makers at the show, providing great gift ideas to visitors.  All DCCI clients participating in the Made Local campaign can apply to be part of the display.  If you are not already part of Made Local don’t worry - signing up is simple, quick and free.

Developed by the DCCI, the Made Local campaign promotes and supports makers who are making product in Ireland. The link is in the form below - and we encourage all clients to get involved and benefit from the:

  • free Made Local point of sale material
  • Made Local branding on your stand at Gifted
  • listing on the Made Local directory
  • national press and advertising campaign in the run up to Christmas

Why apply?

  • Catch the attention of more visitors: the Made Local Display will be located in the heart of Main Hall at the show, and provides visitors with the chance to browse and get gifting ideas. Gifts featured in this area will be labelled with the makers name and stand number - directing visitors to your stand for purchase.
  • Reach more consumers: From previous shows we are aware participation in the display area regularly leads to strong sales of the products featured.
