Since 2003, the Canadian Gift and Tableware Association has worked to improve the timeliness and relevance of information related to the Canadian giftware market and industry. The overall objective is to help retailers and CGTA members plan a more efficient and profitable business.
The 2012 MarketPulse report is no different than past surveys in that it provides stakeholders with information on best-selling categories, in additon to what's trending up and what's trending down. Also available on the CGTA website are past surveys dating back to 2003 that delve into areas such as key buying influences, supplier service, average annual turn rates, mark-ups, sales volumes, operational statistics and product sourcing. You can access both the digital and PDF versions of the report.
