Section 1: Introduction
Clarion Events and Handmade in Britain have created CRAFT to provide a commercial platform for
designer makers who wish to reach an audience of professional retailers and collectors. CRAFT is
a new trade event for leading contemporary makers which will take place alongside Home and Top
Drawer from the 11-13 January 2015 at Olympia, London.
The launch of CRAFT was in response to increasing demand from retailers searching for high
quality products with provenance; items which are truly unique and original; objects with heart, soul
and individuality. CRAFT is the place where professional buyers will discover just such products.
CRAFT fills a gap in the UK market for a high quality, juried trade event which will enable leading
Makers and Artisans to meet a substantial audience of international retailers, galleries, museums,
professional buyers and collectors within a dedicated trade event in London.
Located alongside Home and Top Drawer at Olympia, CRAFT is the most recent addition to
Clarion’s rapidly growing portfolio of events. Housed in its own specially created space, CRAFT will
be home to over 150 contemporary makers who will be carefully selected by the CRAFT advisory
CRAFT is run for Clarion Events by Piyush Suri, Founder and Director of Handmade in Britain with
close support from Ian Rudge, Brand Director at Clarion Events and Co-Founder of 100% Design
and Tent London. Between them, Ian and Piyush have a wealth of contacts and experience within
the world of Craft and events.
In a prime location within a spacious environment, CRAFT will consist of affordable, custom
designed, purpose built wooden shell-scheme stands in user-friendly configurations, complete with
lighting and sufficient space to display work to its best effect.
CRAFT exhibitors will also benefit from exhibitor work-shops and study days prior to the exhibition
to assist makers with the process of developing trade contacts and income from trade sources.
Visitors (See Fact Sheet for detailed data)
14,000 trade buyers regularly attend Home and Top Drawer at the busiest buying time of the
commercial year. CRAFT will be marketed to and attract professional, international and UK trade
buyers, retailers, independents, multiples, department stores, museums & galleries, interior
designers and corporate and public sector buyers, specifiers and collectors.
Section 2a: CRAFT 2014
The launch of CRAFT in January at Earls Court took place on the 12 – 14 January 2014
complimented by Top Drawer Spring and Home. Supported by Craft Magazine and Handmade in
Britain it was a huge success and exceeded exhibitors, organisers and visitor expectations. With
over 100 British and international makers there was a beautiful selection of work, from textiles,
jewellery, glass to woodwork and ceramics.
Feedback from our exhibitors has been very positive and encouraging and visitors where
impressed with the high quality of work at the event.
It was a superb show, the overall look and presentation was top quality and I was so proud
to be involved. Many visitors to my stand also commented on the high standard and upbeat
feeling in CRAFT ’14.
Exhibitor: Helen Chatterton, Perfection of Production, Stand CC5
CRAFT was a stunning event and all the makers exhibiting that I spoke with were absolutely
thrilled with it.
Dan Goode, Chief Seeker, Seek & Adore Ltd
Section 2b: CRAFT 2015
The success of the 2014 launch has been a huge success and from January 2015, CRAFT will
take place in the magnificent central London location of Olympia.
Olympia is situated in the heart of London, a venue full of character and charm. We will use the
setting of the dramatic, light-filled venue, which is the perfect setting for high quality design led
gifts, homewares and craft to create the UK’s best trade event – one that buyers and exhibitors
alike will love; where it will be a pleasure to do business.
CRAFT will once again be sat alongside Top Drawer and Home to create a 3-in-1 collection of
shows which will be the UK’s most compelling and relevant design-led trade show; one that is
meticulously curated and beautifully designed, with a unique character and appeal.
