Visitor data from Totally DIY Show 2015 revealed strong support from across the industry. Buying teams from the biggest DIY retailers, great representation from the UK’s high street hardware retailers, and decorative, timber and builders merchants all added to the mix.
Big Wipes show how it’s done at Totally DIY
National retailers such as Tesco, Halfords, Homebase, Wyevale Garden Centres and B & Q, along with the many independent retailers visited the show between 15-17 February 2015. They all naturally spent a large chunk of their time on the Big Wipes stand. Above all, we wowed everyone with the amazing cleaning ability of our Big Wipes industrial hand cleaning wipes.
We demonstrated the difference between our three types of wipes. Firstly, our dual-sided Heavy-Duty wipes are best for ingrained dirt on hands. Secondly, our biodegradable Multi-Surface wipes are super absorbent and thus best for mopping up filth on surfaces. And finally, our Multi-Purpose wipes are strong and tear resistant and thus great for general use.
Show Summary from the Organisers
Paul Grinsell, Show Director Totally DIY Show had this to say: “The overall feel of the show was positive and optimistic. Many exhibitors especially commented on the good quality of the leads they were picking up. This year marks the 21st time the Totally DIY & Totally Tools trade shows have run, and their third year at the popular Ricoh Arena in Coventry.
“The show had a total of 111 stands, which was up from 102 in 2014. Over 150 exhibitors and key brands from across the DIY, hardware and tool sectors were represented. Further, companies entered nearly 100 new products into the New Product Showcase area. Visitors, therefore, had plenty to take a look at and consider for the upcoming season.”
Paul concluded: “The New Product Showcase area and Best New Product Awards also caught the visitors’ imagination this year, as they were challenged to ‘Visitor Vote’ for their favourite new product on the display. We are creating great opportunities for suppliers and buyers to meet up, socialise and do business – and it’s working well!”
