ICHF Events has confirmed it will run a second edition of its Creative Stitches and Hobbycrafts Show at Glow, Bluewater this September following its strong debut at the retail-based venue.
 
The organiser attracted more than 11,000 visitors and reported a 25 per cent rise in pre-show ticket sales to its first consumer show at Glow which ran from 19 to 21 February.
 
The next Creative Stitches and Hobbycrafts Show will take place from 6 to 9 September and will feature 150 stands, demonstration areas and workshops led by creative suppliers and industry experts.
 
“Glow is an exciting new concept that provides a number of unique opportunities for organisers and exhibitors,” ICHF Events MD David Bennett said.
 
“As we experienced in February, Glow’s integration with Bluewater creates additional appeal, as well as providing significant facilities for visitors which are simply not available at any other venue.
 
“Without doubt, these other elements made a significant contribution to the success of Creative Stitches and Hobbycrafts, particularly with regards to visitor dwell time, spending and recommending the show to peers.”
 
Glow venue director Rebecca Cardozo claimed ICHF Events’ decision to return is a testament to the new venue’s success.
 
“We set out to create a new model of events and exhibition space and our ambition is being rewarded,” she added.
