ICHF (International Craft & Hobby Fair Ltd) Events was established in 1976 by founders Maurice and Ruth Brown; their son-in-law David Bennett joined a year later. David quickly took over as MD of the company and remains in the role today. His children Karina Burns & Troy Bennett, along with his son-in-law Simon Burns, have joined the company in recent years, making ICHF Events a truly family affair! In 2014 Simon and Troy became joint Managing Directors of the company.

From small beginnings concentrating on trade exhibitions, the company has grown considerably and now has an exciting annual programme of over 24 market leading consumer and trade shows. Held at major UK exhibition venues, including The NEC Birmingham, ExCeL London, SECC Glasgow, EventCity Manchester and Westpoint Exeter.

Standing out as the leading event’s organiser in all creative craft and hobby industries, ICHF Events constantly strives to bring all their show visitors an enjoyable and inspiring day out with all the latest supplies, ideas and innovations.

Exhibitors can expect professional shows ran in the most efficient manner, from the moment of booking through to the end of the show.
