The Excellence in Housewares Awards are owned and organised by Progressive Housewares magazine in conjunction with bira (The British Independent Retailers Association). 2019 marks the 20th Excellence in Housewares Awards, which have been embraced by the industry and recognised as the 'Oscars' for the housewares trade. The awards shine the spotlight on both retailers for their retailing excellence as well as suppliers for their product innovation and service acumen. 

The Excellence in Housewares Awards is as much a networking event as it is a celebration, giving guests an opportunity to make the most of their time in London. A champagne drinks reception starts at 6:45pm - which is always a lively atmosphere as industry colleagues say hello to each other, followed by an evening that includes a three course meal, entertainment, and the awards presentation. And it doesn't end there, the 'after party' is a firm favourite in the housewares trade calendar!

28 November 2019
Business Design Centre, Islington, London, N1 0QH

The date has been set for the 2019 Ladder Club seminar for would-be, newbie and emerging publishers as Thursday 28 November. For the first time ever, this one-day seminar – which is an ‘in a nutshell’ course on card publishing – will be held in London, at the Business Design Centre in Islington. (Previous to this the event took place in Westcliff-on-Sea in Essex, but there has been a call for an easier-to-reach location).

The packed one day agenda will cover the rudiments of greeting card publishing – avoiding the early pitfalls, production queries and quandaries, how to price your cards, how to get your cards to market, agents, preparing for trade shows, licensing and export. 

The cost of attending The Ladder Club seminar is £90 (+VAT) – it really is well worth it. Each seminar fills up quickly and spaces are limited.
