The Exhibitor Briefing, will be held on Thursday 7th March at the BHETA  offices in Birmingham, with the objective of bringing all exhibitors up to speed with all the initiatives and new features that will form part of this year’s show.

The event starts at 9.30 with registration and coffee and winds up at 1.30 pm following a networking lunch.

The session is ideal for those wishing to find out more about upcoming trends in the housewares and small electricals retail market, and how they can be used to influence your product displays at the Exclusively Shows in June and stimulate visitor interest.
The briefing will also act as a great introduction to the shows to first time exhibitors and first time exhibition stand organisers, as the Exclusively team will be on hand to answer any questions and offer advice on how to get the best out of this year’s exhibition.

Future Trends
Phil Pond of Scarlet Opus will provide a brief on the key consumer and design trends the shows will be focussing on this year.  They will feedback to exhibitors how the ‘Trend Tours’ were received by visitors at last year’s show, and how the trails of ‘On Trend’ product will be chosen and identified at the show.
