Organisers of the 13th edition of the housewares trade show Exclusively Housewares are promising it will be one of the best ever shows.
Plans for this year's show are well underway and it already has a full line-up of exhibitors, and organisers are planning ahead for expansion in 2015.
"We have already researched and identified key overseas retailers we feel would be of particular interest to our exhibitors and approached them about attending the show in June," explained Show director Simon Boyd. "Plans for our industry networking summer party are well underway and the updated show website and full exhibitor listing is available for all our potential visitors to take a look at.
"Like our exhibitors we know we need to be well organised and thinking ahead to be able to deliver a good show for everyone involved. We do not take the past success of the show for granted; it is something we work hard at every year to make sure all the details come together."
Last year's show attracted its biggest audience to date, growing visitor numbers by 6% on 2012. In addition, the majority of new exhibitors from 2013 will be returning for 2014.
Mr Boyd added: "We have some very loyal exhibitors who really form the backbone of the show; their renewal every year gives the show stability and the confidence of presenting a great line up for visitors every year."
New exhibitors for 2014 include Everyware Global, Kitchen Aid, Melitta Europa, Root7 and Smart Worldwide, with Fiskars, OXO Good Grips and SodaStream returning to the show after a break. They will be joining big names, including Addis Housewares, Brabantia, Haus Marketing & Distribution, Joseph Joseph, Premier Housewares, Scott Brothers, Tefal and UP Global Sourcing, among many others.
The 2014 Exclusively Housewares show will run at the Business Design Centre in London on Tuesday and Wednesday, June 10 and 11.
