What a night at the glittering EIH

The housewares industry reunited in style at this week’s glittering Excellence in Housewares Awards night (Wednesday October 6), with a celebratory atmosphere that buzzed with friendship and joy.

Retailers of all types, suppliers and industry figures were delighted to come together with friends, peers, colleagues, and business partners – in some cases meeting in person for the first time.

“The warmth, camaraderie, and sheer joyfulness on the Awards night was truly overwhelming,” acknowledges Rob Willis, director of Max Publishing (EIH organiser). “It was a huge privilege for us to welcome the housewares community back together under the same roof.”

 

Guests were serenaded by roving musicians at the Champagne Reception (kindly sponsored by Tefal) and during dinner.

Prior to and during the Awards presentation, comedian and foodie host Jayde Adams raised the laughter decibels, winning over the audience with her Bristolian charm and tongue-in-cheek efforts to secure some housewares for her new house. Jayde also scored on her kitchenware knowledge and appreciation of the industry, joking that the truly heroic retailers of kitchen equipment had deserved a public clap during the pandemic.
