With places already booked by buyers from a major supermarket, a leading buyer group, an incentive company looking for product and licensing agency, places on the Exclusively Shows’ new guided ‘Trend Tours’ are proving to be popular across a range of show visitors.
Sponsored by BHETA and hosted by trend forecaster Scarlet Opus, the team of trend analysts has been working closely with exhibitors to identify products that epitomise key trends in the market and put together a 30-minute guided Trend Tour of the show.
Some of the trends they will talk about are relevant now or will start making an impact in the run up to Christmas, others will reveal themselves next spring/summer.
The Trend Tours are limited to small groups of five or six people, being led by one of the Scarlet Opus team. They all start from the Shows’ new Seminar & Trend Theatre, where visitors will be able to see all the ‘On Trend’ products identified by Scarlet Opus displayed alongside key trends information and indicators. Visitors will find this on the Gallery in the Business Design Centre, close to the Shows’ dining room.
In addition, visiting companies are being offered the opportunity to book a Trend Tour just for their own team if it suits them better, and specific tours are also being offered to press.
Visitors wishing to book a place on one of the Trend Tours should select a time from the information displayed on the show's Home Page.
Show director Simon Boyd says “As two specialist shows we offer a depth and breadth of brands, products and suppliers that is very attractive to a great mix of retailers for whom housewares and SDA products range from the purely functional right through to ideal gifts.
“The Scarlet Opus team are providing visitors with an On Trend product display, guided Trend Tours and all our exhibitors will have ‘On Trend’ logos to display to highlight appropriate products, so it’s also the perfect place to spot new trends emerging!”
Both shows open next week on Tuesday, June 14 and Wednesday, June 15 2016 at the Business Design Centre, London. To register for the show CLICK HERE.
