Winner announced for the Excellence in Housewares Awards 2016
Stephen Amis, Cookshop Team Leader at Jarrold announced as Retailer of the Year 2016 at the Excellence in Housewares Awards for 2016.
Housewares ‘stars’ gathered in style on Wednesday 5 October to hear the announcement of the 2016 Excellence in Housewares Awards winners, organised by Progressive Housewares in conjunction with the CHA and widely regarded as the housewares industry’s ‘Oscars’.
Over 400 retailers and suppliers attended the ‘all singing and dancing’ awards night at London Lancaster with its exuberant Bollywood theme.
Dhol drummers welcomed guests, many in full Bollywood regalia, as they made their way into the champagne reception complete with music from sitar players (sponsored by Ultimate Products). The awards were hosted by BBC Asia presenter Tommy Sandhu, with world famous Bollywood superstar Karan Pangali of KSpark putting on an incredible performance and leading a memorable dance workshop after the awards ceremony. Cocktails from Vitamix and music from live band The Lionels helped guests celebrate into the early hours.
Jo Howard, editor of Progressive Housewares commented on the fitting theme for the evening “Bollywood provided a sensational backdrop for our celebration of the housewares industry’s achievements. She added, after all, so much of today’s housewares retailing is about putting on a showstopper in-store to capture the attention of ever more demanding consumers.”
