Hallmark Prepares To Go On The Road

Hallmark is thinking big about its annual January Roadshow programme. 

“We are doing more large shows than in previous years,” confirms Amy Banks, Hallmark’s trade events and marketing manager. The publisher has revealed the 12 locations it has selected in the UK and Ireland to showcase its 2019 Christmas collection and other products.

Kicking off on January 8 (in Belfast), the ‘tour’ extends to January 23 with final shows in Dublin and Manchester.
