As we head into 2023, the retail industry faces new challenges and opportunities. From eco-conscious consumers to the resurgence of nostalgia, retailers must adapt and evolve to meet the changing demands of the market.

This article explores the key retail trends that will emerge in 2023 and how attending the Home & Gift Buyers' Festival can help retailers stay ahead of the curve.
Eco-conscious consumers and sustainable shopping

Modern Psychedelic: tapping into nostalgia
The 2023 edition of the Home & Gift Buyers' Festival features a collaboration with The Better Trends Company and embraces the theme of Modern Psychedelic. This trend is inspired by the shopping community's craving for past joys and nostalgia-inducing products. Retailers can capitalise on this trend by sourcing products that evoke a sense of nostalgia while still being contemporary and appealing to today's consumers. The festival offers a wealth of inspiration for retailers to tap into this growing trend.
