The BHETA has rescheduled the Exclusively Show to August 2021.
In view of the ongoing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, the BHETA board have rescheduled the Exclusively Show to August 24 and 25, 2021.
Will Jones, Chief Operating Officer of BHETA and Chair of Exclusively said, â€œThe health and well-being of all Exclusively attendees is of paramount importance. We consulted with our exhibitors and visitors and there is a genuine desire for the show to go ahead, but at the right time and in the right place and there was strong support for a move to August.â€
â€œMoving the date provides an opportunity for the industry to gain more confidence as the vaccination programme gathers momentum, and the timing fits with the Autumn buying season. The speed of the vaccine roll-out has given us genuine belief that by August the UK will be back to some form of normality â€“ the pace of the roll-out is continuing to rise and we expect, based on todaysâ€™ numbers, that by showtime a majority of UK adults will have had two vaccine shots; and our industry will be able to move forward,â€ he added.
The Exclusively Show regularly has over 130 companies and 300 brands participating, representing all the key product categories in the housewares sector and many big brand names are part of the show. Retail visitor interest has been increasing over the past few years and features such as Trend Displays, Trend Talks and The Brand Showcase, aimed at media visitors, will remain features of the Exclusively Show in 2021.
