Exclusively shows collaborate with HTA
The Exclusively Electrical and Exclusively Housewares shows are working with the Horticultural Trades Association (HTA) to encourage more of its members to attend this year’s events.
Simon Boyd, Exclusively show director, said: “Garden centre buyers have always attended the show, but we wanted to spread the word about the opportunities for retailing housewares and small domestic appliances more widely amongst garden centres, and following a visit to the show last year by Carol Paris [HTA chief executive], we agreed to collaborate with the Association this year to actively encourage their members to attend.”
Carol Paris said: “Many HTA Members have seen excellent growth on housewares and cookshop departments. The Exclusively shows give them the opportunity to focus on this key area and see the latest products and trends in the marketplace.”
“As two specialist shows, we offer a depth and breadth of brands, products and suppliers that is very attractive to a great mix of retailers for whom SDA products and housewares range from the purely functional right through to ideal gifts,” said Boyd.
“We are sure HTA members will benefit from this quick, concentrated look at this product area.”
Both shows will run on Tuesday 14th June and Wednesday 15th June 2016 at the Business Design Centre, London. To register, visit the show website: www.exclusivelyelectrical.co.uk.
