Big Wipes was in colourful attendance at The RCI Show held in Coventry on the 29th-30th of October 2014. It turned out to be the perfect showcase for all roofing, cladding and insulation products and services for trade professionals and specifiers.
This is what Roofzine, the online edition of RCI Magazine had to say about the exhibition:
“A broad cross-section of the roofing, cladding and industry sectors from both the UK and abroad descended on the Ricoh Area, Coventry, for the first annual RCI Show.
“With over 130 exhibitors bringing thousands of new products and materials to this inaugural event for the roofing, cladding and insulation sectors, the Show hall was a hive of activity for both days of the event, with packed Seminar Theatres, busy Demo Areas and visitors making the most of the expertise on offer in the Technical Centre.
“Feedback from those exhibiting and those visiting was wholly positive over the course of the event, with manufacturers praising the show’s ability to attract the right audience of contractors and specifiers and doing good business from their stands and generating quality leads. Comparing the show to other industry exhibitions he had exhibited at, Ruud Veldwijk of OMG Roofing Products said: “I have a feeling that this is better. There is a better mix of stand-holders and also a good mix of people that are coming, (such as) contractors, which we like as we like to promote to the end user.”
Speaking on day two of the Show, David Hawkins, Brand Ambassador for Big Wipes, said: “There are a lot of roofing distributors and contractors here visiting, and they’re the ones we need to talk to. For all those time they need to clean their hands, tools and surfaces at work or on the move, dermatologically tested Big Wipes 4×4 industrial antibacterial cleaning wipes are their no-fuss, no-mess solution to removing silicone sealants, tar, epoxies, PU foam, grease, paints, adhesives, oil and general grime. We are here to show them first hand just how good the range of Big Wipes cleaning products is.”
The visitors to the Big Wipes stand were so impressed, that they took to social media to express their feelings, plus the RCI Show organisers sent their film crew to capture the fantastic demonstrations.
Visitors were also pleased with what the show had to offer, with one employee of SM Roofing telling RCI: “This is absolutely ideal for me. It is fantastic; really what we want to see.”
Jay Smith from Cefil UK stated: “The RCI Show a great networking event and it’s good for the industry. It’s fresh and bespoke for what we do. Having an industry-specific show is a real coup.”
Another visitor, Graham Foxcroft of Foxcroft Roofing and Building, said: “It’s a well put together show. It’s quite good to know that there is stuff available that we can’t get on our local shelves – to get that product knowledge. That’s why I’ve come. There is a good mix here, there is all sorts of stuff going on.”
