Exhibiting at showUP
quality is key
showUP has quickly become the ultimate Dutch trade show for home and gift. The striking design of the fair and the characteristic location are the basis of success.
But the most important part of showUP's success is quality of the exhibitors, best described as contemporary modern and design driven. These factors make showUP an inspiring, creative and innovative event.
We aim for a well-balanced exhibition with a good representation of branches and styles. In addition, the quality of the brands and products is important. All registrations are therefore carefully monitired. That's how we keep showUP fun and inspiring.
The following segments are represented at showUP:
|• home deco||• lighting||• kids|
|• cooking & tableware||• well-being||• gifts & gadgets|
|• stationery||• lifestyle||• books|
For each product group a maximum number of exhibitors is set. The focus lies on living, cooking & tableware, gifts & gadgets and kids.
The various product groups are mixed on the floorplan. There are no "sections" where segments are grouped. This makes the entire event interesting for all visitors.
Exhibitors from the kids segment however are grouped together, this special is called growUP and consists of 30-40 participants.
The last edition of showUP from 5-6 september in Vijfhuizen was visited by 4.000 professionals. With a growth rate of 33% that is a significant step back to pre-corona numers.
