Next month sees the return of the INDX Housewares & Linens show at the Cranmore Park Conference and Exhibition Centre in Solihull (July 13-14), which features a dedicated space for Home Gifts and tabletop, as well as new show experiences, including trends presentations.
Curated by buying group Associated Independent Stores (AIS), exhibitors include Portmeirion Group, Denby, Dartington, Eddingtons, Captivate Brands and Katie Alice.
In a series of retail focused presentations, Phil Pond from trend forecasting agency Scarlet Opus, will explore future product and consumer trends, as well as discussing buying behaviour and purchasing patterns.
The show will also feature a wine tasting with TV presenter and wine expert Olly Smith, live product demonstrations and an after-show drinks party.
“We had a very positive reaction to our show in February,” commented Rachel Breen, AIS’ head of homewares. “It was an extremely upbeat two days, with plenty of business being written.”
The show is open to all retailers and offers attendees free admission, free onsite parking, plus complimentary barista refreshments and breakfast pastries.
