This year, our 23rd annual Hughes HomeTech Show saw 13,000 people visit us at The Norfolk Showground, Norwich! The biggest show so far, saw visitors travelling from near and far to see what was on offer.
With stands, demos and teams from leading manufacturers such as Panasonic, LG, Samsung, Sony, Miele, Beko, Electrolux, Indesit, Pioneer, Kenwood, Monitor Audio, Toshiba, SONOS, Yamaha, Morphy Richards, CDA and many others, there really was something for everyone.
Also featuring a farmers market, live cookery theatres with multi Michelin Star award winning chef Jean-Christophe Novelli, Great British Menu chef Richard Bainbridge & fellow local chef Andy Snowling and hourly prize draws and giveaways we didn’t stop for a minute.
Our teams work extremely hard to change an empty venue into an amazing high tech and interactive show so it was great to hear this from Jon, from one of our West Mids stores:-
After a 5 and a half hour drive on Friday I arrived in time to get straight on with the show that evening… I was made to feel so welcome by everyone from the minute I got there to the minute I left on Sunday evening. Saturday and Sunday was an eye opener … Non-stop from the time the show opened to the time it closed…Although I was run off my feet most of the time it was still a really enjoyable experience being there. The show itself was amazing, with lots going on and plenty of fun to be had; I wouldn’t hesitate to put myself forward for another show!
We were also told “It’s not like a normal show, it’s amazing. You can have your own personal shopper and visit all the stands then drive round the back where they load it all into your car for you. It’s a one-stop shopping experience where you can actually try out the products rather than waiting until they are delivered.”
Another visitor told us “Kids, old and young, flocked to see the Parrot drones; the hall was filled with amazing smells from multi cookers, bread makers, blenders, smoothie makers, the cookery theatre….. every time you took 10 steps there was a new aroma to lure you to a stand!”
From David at our Haverhill branch “I worked at the show, I thought it was fantastic, great atmosphere, wonderful people – even people I had never worked with were so friendly and helpful.
The deals were incredible. My experience was so eye opening and to be honest the reps were more than helpful and patient with the customers. I’m sure I will be attending again next year and look forward to it.”
