exclusively preview Michelle Dickinson, Managing Director at Burton McCall I

n usual circumstances, we are used to having a full calendar of events throughout the year with many

opportunities to engage with our customers. Exclusively Housewares will be our second Trade event for 2021, but our first in the housewares sector. We are really looking forward to having the opportunity to reconnect in this setting. Whilst virtual meetings have been imperative over the past eighteen months, we hugely miss the face-to-face Show interaction”, comments Michelle Dickinson, MD. Mohamed Hajat, head of sales, added

“Having been forced to showcase products virtually during lock down, our sales team have done a fantastic job over the past few months to introduce new ranges to the market and been extremely creative in the way that they present, but nothing replaces being able to show products in a real life setting and offer a more hands on and personal approach.” Our brands have fully taken on board the changes in customer habits such as working from home and spending more leisure time in private gardens etc. As a result, they have developed some fantastic new product ranges which we are really looking forward to introducing

at the show. From CamelBak, we have the new Horizon collection which is a line of reusable and sustainable drinkware designed for both the back garden and away from home. The range is designed with meticulous attention to detail and includes unique products such as the Wine Bottle which can hold a full bottle of wine and keep it chilled for hours. We also have a beautifully designed

large capacity vacuum bottle from Aladdin with a built-in twin cup and push button easy pour stopper. Keeping your drinks hot for up to 25 hours and with a powder coat finish, the CityPark Thermavac™ is ideal for sharing a hot coffee on that long walk with a friend. Michelle Dickinson comments, “It has been such a long break from attending events, we almost forgot how much time and effort goes into the organisation. Our team are doing a fantastic job however at jumping straight back on the wagon and pulling together an impressive platform to present to buyers. We are really looking forward to being back at Exclusively in August and welcoming both familiar and new faces onto the Burton McCall stand. See you there!”
