Visitor registration for Exclusively 2024 already up on last year

Registered visitor numbers for next week’s Exclusively show are already 13% up on 2023 numbers.

Not only did exhibition space at the UK’s leading housewares, gift and small domestic electricals show, Exclusively (11 and 12 June 2024) sell out sooner than ever before this year, but registered visitor numbers are tracking at 13% up on 2023 numbers, suggesting another potentially busy show this year.

This follows the 10% YOY increase last year, a figure which also saw the show well up on its pre-lockdown numbers. All the show’s allocated hotel rooms – part of a package of incentives to make attendance easy for retailers – have been booked to a wide range of UK multiples, independents, outlet stores, catalogue and online retailers and garden centres, as well as the highest ever numbers of overseas visitors.

Buyers from the likes of AO, B&Q, Next, Sainsbury’s, Dunelm, Dobbies, Lakeland, Homebase, Robert Dyas, and Blue Diamond will mingle with a plethora of UK independents and specialist cookshops, hardware and electrical shops, department stores and shopping channels, as well as retailers such as Freemans, Trago Mills and TJX.

Overseas buyers from as far away as South Africa will be joined by retailers from Germany, France, Spain, Eire, Sweden and the Channel Islands.

Steve Richardson, Exclusively’s marketing director said: “We are looking forward to the show with confidence given the increase in registrations and we are optimistic that this will translate into increased visitor numbers. The show’s strengths of a very exclusive entry criteria, the best brands in the industry, a fabulous trend showcase combined with our ethos of really looking after our visitors, with free refreshments, evening reception, subsidised travel available for all visitors is proving increasingly popular.

“There are some notable trends among exhibitors driving particular interest: tableware has made a real resurgence at Exclusively and now accounts for 20% of all stands. Brands such as Portmeirion Group and Villeroy & Boch have returned to the show, alongside regulars such as Denby, Mason Cash and Sabichi.  They are joined by a good number of newcomers such as Tarhong, ABS Pottery, Sur La Table, Wade, Royal Victoria and Milton Brook.

“Another category which is very well represented this year is small domestic electrical, now 21% of the show. There are some eye-catching bigger brands there for the first time such as Shark Ninja, and the list includes a whole range of sub-categories alongside the core of beverage makers, food prep and cooking.

“Cleaning, laundry, waste disposal, air purification and personal care brands have also booked space. It’s great to see names such as Sebo, Zanussi, and Bissell alongside Morphy Richards, Kenwood, Daewoo and Swan.”

Exclusively regularly has over 140 companies and 300 brands participating and attracts all the leading UK buyers in the categories it represents. It also targets international buyers, journalists, bloggers, and influencers, so the opportunities for exhibitors are extensive.
