Brooke House Exhibitions, the organiser of co-located London trade shows Exclusively Housewares & Exclusively Electrical, has announced details of an initiative with Sirius Buyng Group.
Sirius will hold a convention for its members on the first day of the show, which takes place on June 12 and June 13 at the Business Design Centre in Islington.
The convention will be staged on the atrium level of the Gallery Hall above the Exclusively Electrical show which specialises in small domestic appliances (SDAs).
Sirius Buying Group represents 162 members and 250 independent retail outlets that stock home appliances, with a collective trade purchasing power of more than £100 million.
Sirius commercial director Steve Jones said: “We feel Exclusively Electrical presents a great environment for our members to see what SDA and housewares are available to them. The event is supported by a number of our approved suppliers, and it will be great to get our members along to discuss the level of business already done in the group, and the opportunities there are to take advantage of. The show provides the perfect platform for us to do this and, in return, ensures more retailers will attend the event – which is great for our suppliers exhibiting. A win-win for all involved!”
Show director Simon Boyd added: “We are delighted to have reached agreement to work closely with Sirius to support the independent sector. The attendance of Sirius members will offer our electrical exhibitors the opportunity to promote products to this important group of retailers.
“Exclusively Electrical and Exclusively Housewares have once again secured a great line-up of leading brands in the housewares and SDA sectors. This new initiative will add further momentum to our relationship with the retail sector, and we look forward to welcoming Sirius members to the Business Design Centre in June.”
