Who visits

Exclusively Housewares attracts key buyers from all sectors of the housewares and tabletop market. Every year buyers from all the major department stores attend the show, along with mail order and internet retailers. The show is also used by buyers from specialist cookshops around the UK and more general home and hardware stores.

Some of the stores send whole teams to visit, making the most of the opportunity to meet up with current suppliers face to face, other buyers attend to take a quick and easy look through the new trends for the season, to buy for autumn and Christmas, and source new suppliers. Whatever the reason for visiting, the show consistently receives very positive feedback from all the buyers who attend.

Exclusively Housewares also continues to attract a small but significant overseas audience.

Originally conceived of as a ‘UK market’ show, Brooke House has carefully added key European retailers to its visitor wish list over the past five years.

2017 will be no exception.  Influential buyers from mainland and Eastern Europe, Scandinavia and the Far East will be attending the show.  They will come accompanied by their country’s trade press editor – so it’s a good way for the show to spread the story about what our exhibitors offer across the world!

The show runs a special networking event for international visitors, if you are interested in finding out more about this, please contact Patrick Wade.

If you'd like to be sure the show is right for your needs, just give Patrick Wade, the show's director of sales a call on 01825 750784. He will be delighted to discuss the show with you!
