ICHF Show Dates 2017

We are pleased to forward details of the ICHF consumer shows for your consideration. Over 230,000 creative art, craft, needlecraft, knitting, stitching, textiles and papercraft enthusiasts visit ICHF events annually, making them the busiest and most successful consumer shows for the sector in the UK.

MARKETING POWER We experience a steady increase in visitor numbers year-on-year due to our extensive PR and media campaigns. Now working with our parent company, Time Inc. UK and their prestigious titles we can market events to targeted groups of potential visitors and raise awareness of events under our brand umbrella. We advertise throughout local and national mediums including national women’s interest and specialist craft magazines and national and local newspapers, and dedicated event marketing teams use multiple social media channels, e-marketing, poster/billboard campaigns and targeted mailings to groups and coach companies. We are currently the only events company to have been supported by Create & Craft, The Craft Channel and Jewellery Maker TV.
