Hot on the heels of its ‘show stopping’ appearance at the Belfast Self Build & Improve Your Home show in February, Apeer has confirmed it will be supporting its UK retailers at both Grand Designs Live London and Grand Designs Live Birmingham this year. The company is also taking part in the 2014 Fabricator Installer Trade (FIT) Show at Telford International Centre in June.
Described as the number one consumer show for self-build, design, interiors and innovation, Grand Designs Live London takes place from 3 – 11 May at ExCeL. The autumn show returns to the NEC, Birmingham, from 9 – 12 October.
Both shows are based on the Channel 4 TV series presented by ‘design guru’ Kevin McCloud, with the London event promising more than 500 exhibitors, across seven different sections. Apeer has taken a 6m x 6m stand in the Build Hall (B390) and will be working with selected retailers to showcase the company’s composite door portfolio, including its contemporary new MODO collection.
Apeer’s UK sales manager, Pete Shears, said: “Grand Designs Live is a first for us but home build shows have always worked well for Apeer. We anticipate that consumers will respond as enthusiastically in London and Birmingham as they have at more regionally based shows in the past.
,“As well as demonstrating to consumers the highly advanced benefits and features of the doors along with the bespoke nature of the offer, our appearance at Grand Designs is very much about supporting our retailers and driving sales opportunities arising from the show through their doors.”
Apeer also has exciting plans for the trade in mind with its appearance at the FIT Show (10-12 June). The company used the 2013 FIT Show as the launch pad for its MODO collection and says it has since experienced a ‘dramatic growth’ in orders.
