The three-day event will see more than 300 exhibitors show new products, alongside industry expert masterclasses and celebrity appearances from interior designer Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and judge on BBC One TV show Masterchef Gregg Wallace.
Running between 6-8 June, the show will launch two months after the London exhibition, taking place at Earls Court. The annual event, which is organised by Media 10, is famous for exhibiting the first toaster, kettle and microwave throughout its 106-year history.
The Manchester venue, which launched as a public events and exhibition centre in March 2011, is also due to host the event industry’s Venue Expo in September this year.
Andy Orr, EventCity’s managing director, said: "We are extremely excited to have won such a prestigious event and welcome the Ideal Home Show to the north. Attracting large-scale, high-profile events such as this demonstrates the diverse appeal and versatility of the space that EventCity offers and strengthens our position as a leading event venue."Comment below to let us know what you think.
