2016 marks the 24th Hughes HomeTech at the Royal Norfolk Showground, a must-see event now firmly established in the local calendar. Our beautiful and peaceful part of the country rarely sees such exhibitions; these are normally reserved for major cities, such as London or Birmingham. Yet once a year Hughes, a whole host of customers and the major manufactures all come together to produce England’s largest electrical sales show by an independent electrical retailer. In our previous shows we have seen over 150,000 visitors with some 65,000 purchases being made, including over 12,000 TV’s.
Each year Hughes strives to improve on the previous year’s show by bringing the very latest technology to our customers, in an environment that encourages them to interact with the products, chat directly with the manufactures and have a true hands-on experience.
We asked Adam lye, Area Sales Manager for Panasonic, to give us an insight into the show from a manufacturer’s perspective:
“The Hughes HomeTech event is not only the largest consumer electronics sales show in the country, it’s a wonderful occasion for all major suppliers to showcase their product ranges, with fantastic deals and product packages bespoke for the HomeTech weekend. Panasonic send team members from PR, marketing, technical / training and sales who are able to meet and chat with the general public and customers of Hughes to demonstrate and offer guidance and purchase recommendations. The Panasonic stand is tailor-built each year for the show, allowing us to offer the best demonstrations possible and interactive displays for the current product line up. Being showcased this year will be Panasonic’s award winning 4K LED TV and 4K Blu-ray range, our full audio line up from multiroom speaker’s solutions, to Hi-Fi and soundbar options. A full kitchen appliance section, with live demonstrations on our convection microwave ovens; our multi-sensor laundry range and a new up-and-coming category, proving to take the nation by storm – Smart Home Networking. This event is one we all really look forward to and we are all excited to meet the customers coming to our stand this year.”
Along with some fantastic technology on demonstration, Hughes will be offering some fantastic prices over the weekend, many of which will be market leading prices for the products showcased at HomeTech Show 2016.
On top of this great technology there will also be a live cooking theatre running on the Saturday and Sunday. We will be joined this year for live cooking demonstrations by celebrity and TV chef, Brian Turner, local chef and winner of BBC 2’s “The Great British Menu” Richard Bainbridge and local chef and businessman, Andy Snowling. Cookery writer Mary Kemp will also be joining us to guide our customers through the demonstrations and to offer her advice and guidance. All three chefs will be preparing and cooking their own recipes LIVE at the show and customers will even be able to walk away with a free copy of our Hughes Recipe pack.
This is truly a family event so there will also be entertainment for the children with balloon modellers, face painters and child-friendly stalls. Whether you’re interested in gadgets, kitchen appliances, the latest in TV and audio technology or just want to enjoy a friendly browse, there’s something for everyone at the Hughes HomeTech Show.
So, join the thousands of people who make this a regular event in their diary; come and visit us and enjoy the show. Remember: it’s FREE parking and FREE entry, too.
