Christmas Home & Gift Power Pitching Event

24th October, 2023

The Holiday season is coming closer and closer, but after the Christmas Home & Gift Power Pitching event our journalist attendees are all set for their gift ideas. After taking a look at the Home & Gift Christmas sector, our brands followed up with wonderful ideas for this year’s presents that will definitely stand out on anyone’s wishlist. This event gave the attendees a chance to get a head start on all the incredible gift options available this year, saving their time from the festive chaos of Christmas shopping. 

A huge thank you to the brands that made this incredible event:

  • ARRAN Sense of Scotland

  • Ashleigh & Burwood

  • CEWE

  • Wayfair

We were also very grateful to have Yorkshire Handmade Pies as a partner for the Christmas Home & Gift event, who provided all our attendees with a selection of their best pies to enjoy during the presentations. 

After the event we have received great feedback from journalist attendees and brands alike. Here are some of the amazing testimonials:

“Fast, furious and full of amazing info” - Faye Smith, Woman’s Weekly

“Power Pitching makes finding PRs and products easy - the sessions always run smoothly and I come away with a stack of new contacts every single time” - Katie Gregory, Freelance

“A great way to get to know brands and new products!” - Helen Addis, ITV lorraine 

“A magical Christmas adventure! Great fun!” - Megan Conway, HELLO! Ltd

"A great opportunity to get our newest products  in front of the right group of journalists. Also a great forum for us to provide insight into one of our key products, which has a slightly more technical aspect to explain” - Deborah Bettinson, Ashleigh & Burwood

“I've always found the power pitching events to be a hugely valuable part of the yearly PR calendar for a number of clients. It is a brilliant use of time to be able to see a number of national journalists without leaving your desk” - Laura, Wayfair

Overall, the Christmas Home & Gift Power Pitching event was a huge success with lots of wonderful products showcased by the brands. We now await with excitement for future events that’ll bring forward even more show-stopping products!
