Exclusively Housewares organiser Brooke House Exhibitions has revealed that visitors will be offered some trend counselling at this year’s show.
The show is teaming up with trend forecasting agency Scarlet Opus, to host a short presentation covering the key interior design trends and key colours for autumn/winter 2014/15 and spring/summer 2015. The content will cover kitchen, dining and small domestic appliances (SDA) product areas.
In addition, Scarlet Opus, which has experience working with Lakeland, Creative Tops and Le Creuset, will also run a workshop, specifically aimed at independent retailers.
Scarlet Opus will be joined by leading market research company GfK, whose team will present an overview of the market that will identify those product areas that are enjoying growth to help retailers with their category buying choices. The presentations will take place on the second morning of the show on Wednesday, 11 June.
“We’re delighted that Scarlet Opus and GfK have agreed to share their views of the industry and its future with our visitors and exhibitors. It’s vital that we all take the time to look ahead and consider what our customers will be wanting in the months to come,” commented show director, Simon Boyd.
The show has a full line up of 120 exhibitors for 2014 including new exhibitors Everyware Global, KitchenAid, Melitta Europa, Root7 and Smart Worldwide, with Fiskars, OXO Good Grips and Sodastream returning to the show after a break. The full ine-up is listed on www.exclusivelyhousewares.co.uk.
