A Tribute to Peter Limmer

By Richard Walker, commercial director of Eddingtons

I’m writing to inform the housewares community of the sad passing of Peter Limmer on May 25.

Peter was involved in the industry for over 20 years, where he operated mainly behind the scenes, principally designing, organising and building trade stands at major housewares and gifting exhibitions.

He was involved with industry brands such as Buckingham, House of Dorchester, Breville and Antony Worrall Thompson.

Peter set up Triumph Events Europe in the late 1990s and built every Eddingtons’ exhibition stand since then, both in the UK and abroad.

More recently, he overhauled and rebranded the Stow Green exhibition stand at the Spring Fair.

Peter will be sadly missed and remembered by the team here at Eddingtons. His bright disposition and willingness to resolve issues and go the extra mile to assure perfect project delivery was second to none. There was always a power point for a kettle and fridge in place, whether we had ordered one or not!
