Spring Fair 2016 will incorporate a ‘fantastic presentation’ of housewares products, according to exhibition organiser i2i Events Group.
The show, which will take place at The NEC in Birmingham from February 7 to February 11, will host hundreds of brands in this product sector. They will be located in Kitchen, Dining & Housewares: a show-within-a-show in Hall 9.
An array of new companies and brands will join regular exhibitors such as Portmeirion Group, Denby, Rayware Group, Churchill China, Arthur Price, Meyer, Creative Tops, Premier Housewares, Sabichi, BergHOFF, Apollo Housewares, Ulster Weavers and Kitchen Craft.
New to the exhibition in 2016 are Cafflano, Retap, Lavazza and Bojje, while Italian brand TVS has chosen Spring Fair as its exclusive UK Launchpad, and industry giant Villeroy & Boch is returning to the show for the first time in several years.
A number of special events and exclusive launches will be taking place within Hall 9, while The Housewares Innovation Awards 2016 will be held at Resorts World within The NEC complex on the evening of Monday February 8, in conjunction with HousewaresLive.net and Housewares Magazine.
Highlighting both the importance of this sector to Spring Fair and the cross-over buying opportunities it offers to retailers, the VIP Seasons Club, sponsored by Sunrise Bag Company, will also be located in Hall 9.
An express registration area in Hall 9 will encourage further footfall to this part of the show, while the linking area between Hall 9 and The Summerhouse in Hall 8 will feature kitchen, dining and housewares suppliers that have a strong focus on gifting, including Meredith England, Stow Green, Cornishware, The Sunday Girl Company and Host by Dalebrook.
