The Giftware Association Prodcast Features in Top 20 Retail Podcasts


The Giftware Associations podcast which celebrates the home and gift industry from suppliers to retailers to key industry experts and everyone else in between is delighted to be featured in a top 20 list of retail podcasts. 

Best Startup website featured the podcast amongst others focussing on UK retail, with a curated list of the best podcasts out there. Best Startup says “We have selected these podcasts for a variety of reasons, but they are all well worth a listen. We tried to select a variety of podcasts across the spectrum from hosts with a wide breadth of experience.”

The Podcast aka the Prodcast was set up initially to celebrate the Gift of the Year winners, but it quickly became the home of interviewing and finding out more about our industry and its key players, over its many episodes we have featured buyers, suppliers, trade shows, services providers and experts on the high street. It’s an insight into our industry and if you haven't listened to it already then tune into your favourite streaming service or through the Gift of the Year website
