The organiser of trade show Exclusively Housewares has confirmed it has a full line-up for its 2014 show – just 16 weeks after the 2013 edition closed its doors.
The London event, held in June, attracted its biggest audience to date, with visitor numbers up 6% on 2012.
“We are delighted, once again, to be in the position of having a sell-out show!” said show director Simon Boyd. “We’re extremely lucky to have a fantastic waiting list for space in the show, and we are steadily working towards being able to expand the show in 2015 by introducing an additional hall dedicated to small domestic appliance (SDA) exhibitors, which will also allow us to free up some space to bring in additional housewares manufacturers.”
New exhibitors for 2014 include Everyware Global, Kitchen Aid, Melitta Europa, Root7 and Smart Worldwide, with Fiskars, OXO Good Grips and Sodastream returning to the show after a break.
Simon added, “We’re also very pleased that the majority of our new exhibitors from this year will be returning for 2014.” These include Allsorted, Anniversary House, Gimi, JWP, Make International, Rosti Mepal, Tontarelli, Vitamix and Whitbread Wilkinson which all made their Exclusively Housewares debut in 2013.
Some of the show’s long serving exhibitors include Addis Housewares, Amefa, Arthur Price, Charles Bentley & Son, the BHL Group, Brabantia, Creative Tops, David Mason Design, DKB Household, DNC, The DRH Collection, Eddingtons, Elia International, Epicurean Europe, Ethos, Forma House, GEH, Gilberts Food Equipment, I Grunwerg, Hahn Cookware, Haus Marketing & Distribution, Imperial Group, Jean Dubost, Jeray, Joseph Joseph, Just Mugs, JVL Homeware Solutions, Le Creuset, Mason Cash & Kilner, Mastrad, Maxwell & Williams, Metaltex, Meyer Group, Portmeirion Group, Premier Housewares, Pyrex, Rayware, H & L Russel, Sabichi Homewares, Scott Brothers, simplehuman, T & G, Taylors Eye Witness, Tefal, Tradestock, UP Global Sourcing, Wesco, Western House, WMF, WWRD and Zodiac Stainless Products, which have all once more confirmed their support for the 2014 show.
In addition, Exclusively Housewares has a growing number of SDA exhibitors as part of its product mix, including Ascaso, Bamix, Bodum, Bugatti, De’Longhi, Dualit, Graef, Groupe Seb, Horwood Homewares, Hostess, Jura, Kenwood, Meyer, Morphy Richards, Salter, Starbucks, Swan and Vitamix.
It is this increased interest from SDA suppliers that prompted BHE to announce in August that it would like to create a dedicated SDA hall at the show in 2015.
“The reaction to our plan so far has been very positive and, in effect, we have given ourselves 18 months to build an exhibitor list as impressive as our housewares one for the new hall. The reaction from the market has been constructive and optimistic, so we are confident we will find a good mix of manufacturers to support the concept,” commented Simon.
The new hall will include all the small electrical product categories as reported on by GfK; linencare, electrical cooking including microwaves, beverage making, food preparation and floorcare.
Organised by Brooke House Exhibitions, the 2014 Exclusively Housewares show will run at the Business Design Centre in London on Tuesday June 10 and Wednesday June 11.
