Operations director Simon Boyd said: “This year, Exclusively Housewares will have a total of 127 exhibitors and Exclusively Electrical will have 23 exhibitors. The total number of brands represented will exceed 250.
“New for 2019 will be our joint initiative with bira (British Independent Retailers Association) to support the independent retailer. Bira will have a stand for the first time, and each bira member will have a £100 voucher to spend with a bira direct supplier.
“Also, the electrical buying group Sirius will be holding their UK convention on the first day of the show and BHETA (British Home Enhancement Trade Association) will be hosting an informative series of seminars on the second day covering market updates, consumer trends, online marketing and issues facing the independent retailer.
“Our popular trend displays and tours, hosted by trend forecaster Scarlet Opus, have been extended – and Christmas buying for 2018 will be featured throughout the show.”
The Exclusively Shows are owned and organised by Brooke House Exhibitions on behalf of BHETA.
