The Ideal Home Show, the home event organised by Media 10, which took place in London’s Olympia, has concluded following record day visitors. The 17-day event ran from March 24 – April 9, 2017, and, for the first time, co-located with the launch of the Eat and Drink Festival, which celebrated the latest trends in food and drink, artisan vendors and the UK’s first Rosé-only wine bar.

More than 600 exhibitors across the Ideal Home Show and Eat and Drink Festival saw more than 210,000 visitors fill Olympia across the 17-day stretch (an increase of 5 per cent on the 2016 show).

Following their success at Olympia, both the Ideal Home Show and Eat & Drink Festival will soon be making their way up North. The Ideal Home Show will open its doors on June 8, 2017, at Manchester’s EventCity, for four days. This follows the Ideal Home Show Scotland at Glasgow’s SEC, from May 26-29, 2017.

Lee Newton, CEO of Media 10, commented: “The spring show is always one that we look forward to, as it marks the beginning of brighter mornings and lighter nights – and we find that visitors are really excited to inject some change and colour into their homes ready for the summer months ahead.

“We have been delighted to see so many returning faces, along with new ones. And of course, with the launch of the Eat and Drink Festival this year, we’ve had lots more to celebrate and a new arm to the already-fantastic show – with extra focus on celebrating foodie trends and our local vendors.

“We’re looking forward to replicating the success in Scotland in May, and then up North at EventCity in June.”
