We’ll tell you a secret about the awards entry portal…

With a final deadline TODAY, July 16, the Excellence in Housewares Awards 2021 Product Judging Panel is urging suppliers to submit all their product entries. But we’ll tell you a secret… the site will not actually close until midnight on Sunday… top tip ahoy!

“I do hope that all housewares suppliers have submitted their entries (by end of this week) as how can we vote otherwise? And most importantly see products that we may not have seen in this strange year without trade shows or showroom visits!” comments Helen Miller, Fenwick’s buyer for Cook & Dine. “I can’t wait to get judging!”
