Housewares retailers and suppliers have an extra week to submit entries to the Housewares Innovation Awards 2015. The deadline for entries has been extended to Monday November 24.
So if you believe that you supply one of the best housewares products around – or that your retail store or website is one of the best in the industry – then don’t miss this opportunity to shout about it! Organised by www.HousewaresLive.net and Housewares Magazine, the Innovation Awards celebrate innovation in the housewares industry.
The Product Innovation Awards commend the most exceptional housewares products launched in the past 12 months. Entry is open to all suppliers and manufacturers within the housewares industry and the product or range must have come to market between January 2014 and December 2014. There are five categories: Cookware & Bakeware, Small Electricals, Food Preparation, Kitchenware and Tabletop.
The Retailer Innovation Awards reward businesses that go the extra mile in terms of customer service, and are a cut above the competition when it comes to their approach to all aspects of retailing – from imaginative in-store displays and interesting stock assortments to creative marketing initiatives. The categories are: Britain’s Best Cookshop, Britain’s Best Independent Department Store, Britain’s Best Multiple Housewares Retailer, Britain’s Best Housewares Retail Website and Britain’s Best Rising Star (for businesses launched within the last three years ie since January 2012).
There is also one category based entirely on retailers’ nominations. Britain’s Best Housewares Salesperson is a chance for retailers and suppliers to recognise and applaud salespeople – whether they are reps, agents, key account managers or national sales managers.
A host of prominent names have been lined up to assess the product and retailer entries. Their job is to decide which entrants will be worthy of taking home a Housewares Innovative Award trophy, with all the kudos and publicity that goes with it.

The shortlist of finalists will be announced once judging has taken place next month, with the winners announced on Wednesday April 22 at Wokefield Park in Berkshire, as part of the Housewares Conference & Innovation Awards event. During a glittering evening ceremony, the Awards will be presented by globally acclaimed celebrity chef Ken Hom OBE, who is widely regarded as the world’s leading authority in Chinese cookery.
Don’t forget – entries close on Monday November 24! For more information, visit www.housewaresconference.co.uk or contact Laurie Marrington at firstname.lastname@example.org.
