 Housewares Conference attracts raft of new sponsors

In-store video specialist ISV Solutions; the top-selling publisher of cookbooks, ACP Books; cutlery and kitchen knives supplier Amefa; and scales market leader Salter have all put their names to the conference, which promises to repeat the success of last year’s inaugural event.

Salter’s product category manager Caroline Holford told “Salter are delighted to sponsor the Housewares Conference as it was such a resounding success last year. With high-profile speakers on topical subjects it’s appropriate that the UK’s leading scale brand would want to be involved.

“We welcome the opportunity to showcase new designs from our award-winning in-house design team on the day, and to show ‘precisely’ why Salter is still going strong after nearly 250 years.”

The Housewares Conference is already attracting an audience of both independent and multiple housewares retailers, and suppliers, for a day of business sessions and networking available nowhere else in the industry.

The speakers include celebrity cook Rosemary Shrager, Habitat founder Sir Terence Conran, Waitrose central buyer for homewares Christian Haas, Harrods home director David Miller, food writer Charles Campion, Seven Publishing managing director Seamus Geoghegan and owner of Norwich cookshop Looses/ICTC managing director Bruce Crane.

Conference facilitator will once again be Kitchen Kapers cookshops owner Gary Gordon.

The Housewares Conference takes place April 1 2009 at the central London venue One Whitehall Place, and is organised by and Housewares Magazine.
