The 2021 Exclusively Show is to feature a live ‘Launchpad’ initiative showcasing products from suppliers in the housewares, small electricals and gift industries, including start-ups. The concept was trialled successfully at Exclusively Digital in 2020; but has never run as a live element of the show. Exclusively has a proven track record for enabling established brands to get in front of buyers and the media and the idea of the Launchpad is to do the same for companies who have not previously had such an opportunity.
Stands for the Exclusively Show in general, which returns to The Business Design Centre, Islington on 24th and 25th August are now 95% sold following a positive industry response from exhibitors and visitors with renewed confidence following the Government’s ‘roadmap’ announcements.
The curated Launchpad area has 18 stands of which just two remain available to book. Each favourably-priced stand comes with inclusive carpet, table and chairs, lighting and electrics, and benefits from the same promotional package which is available to all exhibitors.
Will Jones, Chief Operating Officer at BHETA and Chair of Exclusively, said: “One of the unique aspects of the Exclusively show is that it has always provided a level playing field for large and small brands. The Launchpad initiative allows the newest and the smallest businesses to get in front of some of the industry’s most significant buyers as well as the Show’s many media visitors. Equally the Launchpad is an opportunity for buyers, journalists and influencers to find something that little bit different, which they are unlikely to have been seen before elsewhere.”
