Screwfix Launches Its First Trade And DIY Show

More than 120 top suppliers will be exhibiting at „Screwfix Live‟, the first dedicated trade and DIY show from the leading multi-channel retailer.

The free event, which will be held at Farnborough Five on 13-15 September, is set to attract tradesmen and serious DIYers from around the country and will feature demonstrations, guest appearances, competitions, and special on-stand offers and deals.

Suppliers including the likes of DeWalt, Bosch and Irwin will be attending alongside many others, to showcase everything from power tools and hand tools, to plumbing, electrical, workwear, landscaping and decorating products.

The entertainment programme includes live demonstrations on the main stage, in addition to the launch of „Britain‟s Top Tradesman 2013‟, Screwfix‟s annual search for the best in the business from plumbers and electricians, to landscapers, builders and joiners.

Andrew Livingston, chief executive of Screwfix comments: “We‟re very excited about the inaugural Screwfix Live, and we are expecting a busy few days! It‟s proving extremely popular with our suppliers, all of the stands were fully booked within weeks of us announcing the show.

“The main reason we decided to launch Screwfix Live is to give our suppliers and customers the chance to meet face-to-face. It‟s a very rare opportunity for them to talk to each other about their businesses, share insight and get their hands on the latest products. There are also some amazing special show-only offers available during the three days so we would encourage people to pre-register now so they don‟t miss out!”
