Stands for this summer’s Exclusively Show are already over 90% sold to enthusiastic housewares, gift and small electricals exhibitors. The popular show, which returns to its usual dates from June 14 to 15 at Islington’s Business Design Centre, is in its 20th year and will host over 130 companies and over 300 brands.
“Plans for Exclusively 2022 are already well advanced and it is fantastic to see the support and enthusiasm of the industry so evident in these early booking figures,” comments Will Jones, Exclusively chairman and chief operating officer at BHETA (British Home Enhancement Trade Association), which owns the show. “We are looking forward to welcoming back overseas buyers and media this year and, as 2022 is the show’s 20th anniversary, we have some special events planned.”
The 2022 Exclusively Show will include expanded versions of all its most popular features such as the Brand Showcase, the trend tours, displays and seminar programme, and The Launchpad. The Launchpad is aimed at smaller and start-up companies exhibiting at the show for the first time.
BHETA is holding a half day briefing webinar for members planning to exhibit at Exclusively Show at 10 am on Thursday March 10 via Zoom. Speakers will include the exhibition’s sales, marketing and operations team as well as Phil Pond from trend forecaster, Scarlet Opus, Richard Watts, curator of the Exclusively Brand Showcase, and celebrity chef Jeremy Pang, who will be offering exhibitors videography opportunities at the show.
There will be recommendations on product selection and stand presentation and how best to take advantage of the generous pre- and post-show marketing support package available to exhibitors (with information on what is required and when). Moreover, the session will discuss events such as the trend tours and talks, and how to make the most of added value show opportunities.
Aimed at regular, returning, and new exhibitors, the briefing webinar will also provide operational and logistical information, including safety protocols at the Business Design Centre.
