About the organisation

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 remained in the role until 2014. His children Karina Burns & Troy Bennett, along with his son-in-law Simon Burns then took over the reins; making ICHF Events a truly family affair! 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 – including CHSI Stitches – Europe’s largest creative craft trade show. Over 250,000 people annually visit ICHF event shows, which have won countless awards over the years. Current venues include Alexandra Palace London, NEC Birmingham, SEC Glasgow and EventCity Manchester, and the portfolio of events continues to grow – now including seasonal Christmas shows. In 2015 Time Inc. UK Ltd - Britain’s leading publisher of print and digital magazine content - acquired ICHF. Fiona Dent, Group Managing Director, Lifestyle, at Time Inc. UK said: “We reach 7.5 million crafters across our women’s brands and this move establishes Time Inc. UK as the country’s market leader in consumer and trade craft events. We know from experience that ICHF is a fantastic business and we look forward to working with the team to develop exciting new opportunities.” Now a Time Inc. UK company, ICHF Events looks forward to continuing to be industry leaders and innovators in the creative crafts event industry.
