One stand only remains available at the live 2021 Exclusively Show, taking place at The Business Design Centre, Islington on 24th & 25th August as registered visitor numbers continue to increase. All 18 stands in the Launchpad area, which showcases small or start-up businesses in the housewares, small electricals and gift industries, are now sold and just one space remains in the main show. Exclusively has a proven track record for enabling brands to get in front of buyers and the media, as well as an established record for predicting trends.
In what will be the first face to face gathering for the housewares, small domestic electricals and gift sectors for almost eighteen months, retailers from around the country are confirming attendance. This includes big name home and department stores such as John Lewis, Fenwick, Robert Dyas, Next, Wilko and B&Q, as well as grocery chains like Iceland and Aldi, specialists such as Lakeland and ProCook, discounters like B&M, Home Bargains, TK Maxx, Studio and Trago Mills, garden centre groups like Bents and Blue Diamond and online giants such as Ocado and eBay.
Media invite acceptances are rising all the time from consumer and trade titles as well as a wealth of influencers, eager to view the Exclusively Brand Showcase, the show feature curated just for journalists and influencers.
Commenting on Exclusively, just two weeks ahead of the show, marketing manager, Steve Richardson said, “With numbers of exhibitors and visitors this high, I can honestly say that from a commercial point of view, it is as if the last eighteen months of pandemic lockdowns had not occurred. With over 130 companies and 200 brand names exhibiting, as other features such as the Trend Tours and Talks with Scarlet Opus virtually sold out, the housewares. SDA and gift sectors are clearly rising to the occasion.
“It goes without saying that the Exclusively Show team and the Business Design Centre (BDC) regards the health and safety of clients, staff and partners of paramount importance and we have agreed measures to ensure the safety of all those on site, in line with the latest UK Government guidance. With such safeguards in place, I am confident of a safe and very successful show with numbers and opportunities set to match any pre-pandemic event of its kind.”
Will Jones, Chief Operating Officer at BHETA and Chair of Exclusively, added: “Exclusively has always been must-see event in the home enhancement industry. There is just one stand left available to book and I would encourage any supplier of housewares, small domestic electricals or gift – including consumables – to take up this amazing opportunity to network with so many key audiences all at one event.”
