The sixth edition of the two day show has been hailed the most successful yet - and work has already started on the 2008 Show.
Exhibitors and visitors were in agreement that Exclusively Housewares - held at at The Business Design Centre in London on June 12 and 13 - 'just gets better'.
"Well over a third of exhibitors signed their contracts for next year at the show, and we are now over 50% sold," commented show director Pam Plant, "which is ahead of last year and a fantastic vote of confidence in the show."
The organisers said visitor numbers rose again this year and added that comments from both first time visitors and show regulars confirmed appreciation for the 'Exclusively' format, of restricted stand sizes is high.
"We're happy that our show format works for the many different types of housewares and tabletop buyers in our sector. However, we're not resting on our laurels; there are always new initiatives to try, like our Merchandise Mart, which we will be building upon next year." said show director Pam Plant.
The 2008 Exclusively Housewares show will take place on 10 and 11 June, at the Business Design Centre, London.
