This year’s Exclusively Housewares has signed up sponsors for a number of the show’s features.
De’Longhi is to take on the key sponsorship of the buyers’ lounge, an area specifically for the use of buyers visiting the show, and which offers free access to wifi connections, two private meeting rooms and light refreshments.
Ready Steady Cook will continue its sponsorship of the show’s tea trollies, which offer visitors and exhibitors a continuous and free supply of hot and cold drinks, and Du Pont and Teflon will be sponsoring the show bags given to every visitor on arrival.
The 2012 show will run on June12 and 13, a week later than usual owing to the timing of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations, at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London.
This will be the exhibition’s eleventh year and it is already a sellout, with 120 exhibitors. Attendance is by invitation only.
