Indies welcome at The Housewares Show

This March, The Housewares Show  – run by Associated Independent Stores (AIS) – will again welcome all independent retailers.  The unique independent buyer-focused show plays host to market leading suppliers, including Denby, Joseph Joseph and Brabantia. Some exhibitors will unveil their spring launches for the first time.

17242 Housewares Show Logo NADIAWith over 70 exhibitors and over 1000 brands (including Smeg, Tefal and Delonghi), the show covers Cookshop, Tabletop, SDA, Home Fragrance and Glassware. Besides a considered and meaningful mix of brands, the show boasts an intimate, relaxed atmosphere, creating a friendly buying environment that is ‘more conducive to making buying and ranging decisions.’

Insightful trend areas will be pocketed around the showrooms, curated by AIS’s buying experts. Using products from exhibitors, the trend areas will also provide ideas on how to create impactful in-store displays and generate add-on sales. Three themes (that appeal across a wide demographic) include Luxe (with marble and metallic highlights) and Tropical Summer, as well as Eco Ranges, such as products made from recycled materials and reusable bottles.

Rachel Breen, event organiser comments on the feature: “We all know the best retailers create inspirational and aspirational in-store displays. Those important finishing touches can result in increasing footfall and prompting customers to buy into a look, raising average transaction values and driving sales.”

The first show day on March 5 (at Cranmore Park, Solihull) will be exclusive to AIS members before doors open to all independent trade on March 6.
