Entries have closed for The Housewares Awards, and nominations are winging their way to our industry judges, who will assess which suppliers and brands that have demonstrated an exemplary business performance this year.
This year’s luncheon awards ceremony will be hosted at stunning riverside venue The Chelsea Harbour Hotel, located on the River Thames and offering stunning views of the river and harbour. The date for your diary is Thursday 7 July, so if you haven’t already bought them, now is the time to book tickets for yourself and your team! More details on page 10.
This issue saw us take a look at the latest trends and launches in a number of growing and established product categories – including small electricals, eco-friendly products, outdoor dining and housewares as gifts. The Funky Appliance Company, Evo Lifestyle Products and The Rayware Group all shared their insights into the forces shaping these categories in 2022, and how retailers can ensure they are maximising their potential.
This is, at long last, our Exclusively issue, and our preview from page 12 to page 19 will give you the lowdown on all the trends and products you can expect to see at the show, from artisan tableware to the latest in SDA and everything in between. Alex and I look forward to seeing you all there!
Elsewhere you’ll find, as always, our regular news, views and product pages, showcasing the latest from market-leading housewares brands across the sector.
