Visitor data from Totally DIY Show 2015 revealed strong support from across the industry, with buying teams in from the biggest DIY retailers, great representation from the UK’s high street hardware retailers, and decorative, timber and builders merchants all adding to the mix.
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 being wowed by the amazing cleaning ability of our Big Wipes industrial hand cleaning wipes.
We demonstrated the difference between our three types of wipes: our dual-sided Heavy-Duty wipes, which are best for hands; our Multi-Surface wipes, which are best for surfaces and our Multi-Purpose wipes, which are great for general use.
Paul Grinsell, Show Director Totally DIY Show had this to say: “The overall feel of the show was positive and optimistic, with many exhibitors commenting 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 (up from 102 in 2014) representing over 150 exhibitors and key brands from across the DIY, hardware and tool sectors, with nearly 100 new products entered into the New Product Showcase area – so plenty for visitors 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!”
