A short history of the show
The 2017 show will mark the 16th time Exclusively Housewares has run.
The show first ran in 2002 and has steadily grown to its current size with 120 plus companies taking part.
The 2015 show was a significant landmark in the history of Exclusively Housewares as a new sister show, separately branded as Exclusively Electrical, was launched to run alongside the long established housewares show. The new show retains the unique format and style of Exclusively Housewares but is aimed specifically at suppliers and retailers of small domestic appliances (SDA).
Exclusively Housewares continues to be the only show in the housewares sector which restricts its exhibitors to a shell scheme stand, up to a maximum size. This was done to control the level of investment spent on exhibiting, and to create a more 'level playing field' with all the stands, and brands, in the show being of a similar size. In addition, show visitors are limited to bona fide buyers of housewares, who are provided with excellent hospitality throughout their visit. Exclusively Housewares, and its unique approach, has maintained its own style and is now an integral part of the housewares industry year.
