Last week we exhibited at the Build Show as part of UK Construction Week 2017 at the NEC in Birmingham. Being the UK’s largest construction trade show, with an audience of over 30,000, this was a fantastic opportunity to showcase our BoundWorx Resin Bound product and it proved to be a great success. For those of you that missed out, here’s an overview of the event.
After months of preparation, Shane, our trainer, and Mark, the newest member of our technical team, made their way up to Birmingham on the Sunday to install the BoundWorx Resin Bound floor for our stand. They used straight aluminium edging strips from DURAL UK (http://dural.co.uk/) to divide up our stand space into 9 sections, and then laid a different BoundWorx finish in each one.
The next day, after the resin had cured, we started installing up the stand and the demo box. We decided to have a demo box so that delegates at the show could see and feel what it’s like to lay our materials. This was hugely popular and attracted large numbers of people to our stand, despite the slightly ominous ‘please do not touch’ signs!
Once the stand was up we were ready and raring to go, we just had to wait until the morning when everyone would start arriving.
On Tuesday morning the show opened and for the next 3 days we were busy on the stand talking to contractors, specifiers, builders, architects and homeowners that are interested in our materials and training services. We networked with many different contractors and construction businesses from all over the country (and abroad!) and we also got to catch up with companies that we already have a working relationship with – some were even exhibiting at the show themselves.
We also ran a popular competition to win a free day’s training and a range of our samples, including a sample box. The competition has been drawn and Matt Bestall from Approved Driveways and Patios is our winner!
