Stands at the Exclusively Show, which takes place at the Business Design Centre in London on June 9 and June 10, are almost sold out according to Will Jones, chief operating officer of BHETA (British Home Enhancement Trade Association), which owns the show.
He said: “We have never been sold to this level so early in the year before. The main stand spaces are completely sold out – and there are just four of the 4×4 stands in the Launchpad area left.
“The Launchpad is one of 2020’s new features aimed at smaller and start-up companies. Stand fees are a very reasonable £1,865 + VAT and are inclusive of walls, carpet, lighting, a power socket, a high-top table with two bar stools, plus a full show marketing pack and entry to the International Buyers Reception and to the Show Drinks Reception.
“The marketing packs include participation in the show preview, catalogue and show review; a dedicated web page; and potential mentions in press releases and social posts.
“Given that this is an opportunity to be in front of hundreds of retail buyers in the cookware, lifestyle, household and gifts sector – including all the major department stores, grocers and garden centres – as well as a chance to access journalists and social media influencers, this is a really good deal. I urge particularly the smaller businesses who are members of BHETA to snap up these last few spaces.”
More than 130 companies and over 300 brands are exhibiting at the event, representing all the key product categories in the housewares sector. Many big names have exhibited for more than five consecutive years.
Retail visitor numbers to the show have been increasing over the past few years. Will said this is “a testimony to Exclusively’ s ability to evolve – presenting new opportunities for exhibitors and visitors alike”.
He added that the 2020 show will include several new elements as well as the expansion of established features such as the Trend Displays, Trend Talks and The Brand Showcase, which is aimed at media visitors.
