About Us

About UsProgressive Greetings Live is owned and organised by Max Exhibitions Ltd which was formed by three directors from Max Publishing; Jakki Brown, Warren Lomax and Ian Hyder, in partnership with Simon Boyd, an experienced exhibition organiser.

Jakki, Warren and Ian have all been involved in the greeting and gift industry for over 20 years via their publications Progressive Greetings Worldwide, The Licensing Source Book and Progressive Gifts & Home.  They joined forces with Simon to create Max Exhibitions and launch the PG Live trade show.

Like all the best ideas, the show started life as a scribble on the back of napkin, went through some serious testing and then started to take shape. 

The team has been delighted by the industry's response to the dedicated greeting card show. Exhibitors, buyers and the rest of the industry have come together to make the show the colourful, vibrant success that it is today.

We hope you can come along and join in the fun with our fabulous exhibitors at PG Live 2018 - see you there!
