Global reach at CHSI Stitches 2020

By Mark Hayhurst 09 Aug 2019

CHSI Stitches 2020 will be a truly international showcase of the latest products released to the market with companies from across the globe booking stand space.

To date, exhibitors attending the 2020 trade show come from America, Germany, Holland, France, Scandanavia, Finland, Russia, Lithuania and India, with more companies securing the limited available stand space daily.

The show continues to strengthen its international reach. Simon Burns, ICHF Events managing director, said: “We are acutely aware of the need for the UK’s craft industry to be strengthening its links with international markets. We are proud to be a global show attracting both exhibitors and buyers from across the world. The developments that continue to be rolled out, including our exclusive industry research on the UK’s craft industry, drive this forward further.”

As part of the development of the show a programme of refreshed and new features has been under way for the last two years and will continue to evolve for the 2020 show.

The Craft Report will be back with further details to be released in the Autumn. The 2020 show will fill hall 12 and there will be one main entrance, a change from the dual entrance of the past few years. The entrance hall will have a fresh new look and a ‘Trending Now’ area will showcase the very latest products from exhibitors, giving buyers a taste of what’s inside.

Organised by ICHF Events, CHSI Stitches has been at the heart of the craft industry for more than 40 years. The trade event also features a catwalk show, Trending Now showcase, and a dedicated Bright Sparks area for the newest designers and creative companies and over 200 key industry exhibitors from across the world.

CHSI Stitches 2020 takes place from February 16-18, 2020, at the NEC, Birmingham, UK.
