The team behind the UK’s largest flooring trade show in Harrogate is launching a new opportunity aimed at contract flooring suppliers.
The new ‘Contract Flooring Zone’ will be part of the HOMES 2018 exhibition which runs at Olympia, London on 28 & 29 November 2018.
HOMES 2018 is run by Ocean Media Group, the new owners of The Flooring Show, as part of its highly successful portfolio of events and publications for the housing industry.
HOMES has grown considerably in the past five years and is the UK’s only event dedicated to residential development, asset management and procurement. It attracts over 3,500 visitors.
“Our HOMES exhibition offers contract suppliers the opportunity to meet a mix of buyers, specifiers, designers and contractors who already attend the HOMES show,” confirms The Flooring Show event manager Kane Thomas. “And we’ll also be utilising our existing flooring database to invite along any South East based interior designers, buyers, architects and specifiers.
“This affiliation with the HOMES show is a good opportunity for some of our Flooring Show exhibitors to grow awareness of their contract offer with a high-quality audience – we felt it was a connection worth developing and reaction so far has been very positive.”
In this launch year space to exhibit within the new Contract Flooring Zone will be limited to just 10 suppliers.
The area will include access to a communal Meeting Hub equipped with a range of round tables and high desks with plenty of power points and internet.
Participating companies will each get a 9sqm shell scheme stand to exhibit in, which will include lighting and furniture and a hospitality package for two employees including lunch at the show and two hotel nights each.
In addition, suppliers will be able to offer up to three hotel room nights to VIP clients and 10 VIP entry passes (worth over £1000).
“We are aiming to make this as easy as possible for those involved,” explains Kane. “Our all-in package means that our exhibitors should only need to bring a couple of sales representatives, marketing information and samples to the show to display.”
Any company who decides to take part, who is also an exhibitor at The Flooring Show in Harrogate, will benefit from a significant discount for taking part in both shows and will be featured in a special ‘Contract Flooring Zone’ Preview stand at The Flooring Show in Harrogate which takes place 16-18 September.
