The final thrust for the 2019 shows is in full swing as the days count down to Exclusively 2019. With over 150 exhibitors, not only do we have more housewares and gifts exhibitors than at any other UK show, we can now delve deeper into the star-studded line-up and highlight what visitors can expect to see.
A big trend that is emerging is that of exhibitor’s products with eco credentials. 25% of our exhibitors are showcasing products with eco credentials, including Eddingtons, Huski, Smidge, Neat Ideas and Dexam with qualities stated as biodegrageable, earth-friendly, minimal impact on the environment and made with recycled materials.
The event takes place at the Business Design Centre, London, on 11-12 June.
One in five exhibitors selecting the categories for hydration and food on the go. There’s a real demand for these products as consumers search for products to reduce single-use plastics and the waste association with “disposable” paper cups from in coffee shops. Food on the go containers continue to offer more attributes from cooling to dividers and inclusive cutlery, but also check out the alternatives for cling film and Roll’eat from Auteur, Eddingtons and Charles Viancin. When it comes to hydration, differentiation is coming from materials they are made from, how easy they are to clean, and biodegradability and of course colour and styling.
A trump card may be Soda Stream. Their star product is their “My only bottle” which enables you to make and take your sparkling water with you (or your preferred fizzy drink), it’s also dishwasher safe and UV resistant.
A few names highlighting hydration are Grunwerg, Thermos, Aydya, Kambukka and Auteur but with so many in the section its worth a visit to the Exhibitors section website exclusvelyshows.co.uk and a category search.
