The Home & Gift show has thrown its support behind this year’s Industry Awards.
The exhibition, which takes place between July 13 and 16 this year in Harrogate, is sponsoring the Kitchenware category in the Awards, which are organised by HousewaresLive.net and Housewares Magazine.
Neil Gaisford, show director at organiser Clarion Retail, said there was a growing affinity between Home & Gift and the Awards.
“You’ll see more and more products in the kitchen that are being sold in gift shops and home lifestyle shops, and which have more of a design element, raising the bar of what’s been before,” he said. “Our shows are design led and that’s why we want to be involved with you guys.”
Home & Gift 2008 has attracted over 900 exhibitors – representing the largest gathering of companies in the UK this summer showing home accessories, gifts and china and glass.
The Industry Awards recognise the very best of the year’s new products, with their suppliers being honoured at the Awards lunch at London’s Royal Lancaster Hotel on May 9 this year. For more details please contact Rachael Pearson on 020 8651 7081 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
