Next year’s Exclusively Housewares show has sold out of exhibition space – eight months before it opens its doors.
The London event, which celebrated its tenth anniversary this year, will also be adding a number of new supplier names and brands to its exhibitor line-up.
They include Apollo Housewares, Brewed By Hand, BSH Home Appliances (a subsidiary of German company Bosch und Siemens Hausgeräte), Denby Accessories, Europasonic, Graef UK, Guzzini – showing in its own right for the first time, Nordicware, PHA KitchEssentials, Tenzo by Premier Housewares and knife company Ziganoff.
In addition Chomette Dornberger, Ethos, Half Moon Bay and the Stewart Group are all returning to the show after a break.
Brooke House Exhibitions, which organises the show on behalf of the housewares members of BHETA, says the 2012 theme will be Setting the Standard for Housewares. It has been chosen to reflect the show’s close ties with London in a year that will see the capital celebrate both the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the Olympic Games.
“With two such key events happening in the city next summer we wanted to acknowledge that 2012 will be the year when only the very best performances will merit attention,” said show director Simon Boyd.
Exclusively Housewares 2012 will take place as usual at Islington’s Business Design Centre, on June 12 and 13.
