On November 11th, 2023, planner enthusiasts from around the globe gathered at the enchanting old paper factory in Herisem, Belgium, for the much-anticipated Gillio Meetup 2023. The purpose of the event was clear: to showcase Gillio's latest releases and provide an exclusive sneak peek into the future of planner designs.

The chosen location, an old paper factory, proved to be the ideal backdrop for an event celebrating the artistry of planners and the love for paper. Attendees were whisked away from Brussels in the morning, transported by bus to the secret location, setting the tone for a day filled with surprises.

As guests arrived, the air buzzed with excitement, and the atmosphere was filled with warmth and joy as familiar faces reunited. The event kicked off with a delightful blend of drinks, hugs, and photo opportunities, capturing the genuine happiness of a community brought together by their shared passion for planning.

The highlight of the morning was the presentation by Mella, who took center stage to share exclusive insights into Gillio's latest offerings. The presentation wasn't limited to the physical audience; it was also live-streamed, allowing planner enthusiasts worldwide to join in the excitement.

The presentation was received very enthusiastically, revealing a lineup of innovative products that left the audience in awe:

  • The B6 Slim Appunto, a notebook cover designed for B6 Slim-sized planners and notebooks like the Jibun Techo, stole the spotlight with its first release in Epoca Undyed leather. Available now.

  • The Cat Edition, inspired by three special cats and conceptualized with input from the Gillio community, brought a unique and personalized touch to the planner world. Expected in 2024.

  • Additionally, the introduction of handbags, a long-awaited addition to Gillio's repertoire, showcased different models to suit various preferences. Discover The DonnaThe ToteThe BellaThe Perla, and The Freya.

  • The unveiling of the new Toscana leather marked a bold move, challenging our bestselling Epoca with an even more premium material. Read more here.

  • The anticipation reached its peak with the grand reveal of the Planner Of The Year (POTY): a special size HBxWA5, a Japanese-sized planner with dimensions almost square, combining the height of Personal size and the width of A5. Expected in 2024.

After all these unveilings, the attendees had the exclusive opportunity to shop and purchase these not-yet-released items for a lilited time only.

The Gillio Meetup 2023 was not just an event; it was a celebration of community, creativity, and a shared love for planners. As attendees left the old paper factory with hearts full of inspiration and goodiebags filled with gifts and some of the latest releases, it was evident that an event like this would be welcomed yearly!
