Independent retailers visiting this year’s live Exclusively Show, which returns to The Business Design Centre, Islington on 24th and 25th August, can not only claim back up to £50 worth of travel expenses but are potentially going to benefit from an extra bonus – The Exclusively £100 Gift Voucher – if they are members of the British Independent Retail Association (Bira).
Independent cookware, tableware, garden, hardware, small domestic electricals and gift retailers who belong to Bira will receive the voucher once they are booked in to attend the show. Once validated at the Bira stand, the voucher can be used towards any single order with a minimum value of £300 minimum (net VAT), placed at the Show. The voucher will be accepted by all Exclusively exhibitors and it highlights the show’s commitment to both exhibitors and visitors, helping to open new accounts and cement existing relationships. The event will see more than 130 exhibitors and 200 brands.
The Exclusively Show belongs to the British Home Enhancement Trade Association (BHETA) and BHETA’s marketing manager, Steve Richardson has been working with show partners to ensure that Exclusively includes some enticing opportunities for independents to check that their product choices and instore displays are ‘on the money’ in the years ahead. He explains, “An exciting ‘must’ for all retailers is the opportunity to preview the key trends in colour, materials and products for this Christmas, 2022 and beyond. The inspirational product displays, trend talks and tours from trend forecaster, Scarlet Opus are hugely popular and while ‘on trend’ products are featured throughout the show, nothing beats seeing the full story in the Trend Hub. The display makes it easy for buyers to understand what will be ‘on trend’ ahead of visiting supplier stands to source the products.”
BHETA’s Chief Operating Officer, Will Jones added, “The Exclusively Show is always an exciting event with its positive, friendly atmosphere and its reputation for predicting commercial opportunities very accurately. With this being the first opportunity for people in the industry to gather in some considerable time, the 2021 Exclusively looks set to be especially popular. Safety for exhibitors and visitors is of course paramount, which is why we have elected to invite buyers and media from the UK only for this year. We are also working closely with the venue to ensure that all guidance is followed to the letter.”
With so many inspirational and commercially valuable opportunities all under one roof, Exclusively is a ‘not to be missed’ event. To book your place, visit www.exclusivelyshows.co.uk. More information can also be obtained from the BHETA Member Services Team on 0121 237 1130.
