Grand Designs Show 2014


A few pictures of our stand at the Grand Designs show back in early October.  A four day event this year which frankly did our legs no favours, especially when someone forgot to bring some stools!

Almost 2 months on from the show we have already had two orders from enquiries gathered on our stand and we have already signed up for next year.  We were considering the Grand Designs London show but we weren’t too sure about the impact 9 consecutive days of standing would have on our poor legs.

Grand Designs Day 1

Friday over and two days to go at the Grand Designs show.  Always a shock to have to stand all day as opposed to sitting on a comfy chair!

AM was a little crazy with a consistent stream of people flowing trhough the hall. The first few hours flew past as we spoke to 50-60 budding developers.

When the day was out we had shifted over half our stock of brochure which might mean a quick return trip back to Romsey on Saturday to pick up some more – I sure hope not.

All good fun though – keep posted and wish us luck tommorow….

Grand Design Show – Build Up

Up bright a breazy ahead of the first day of the show today.

We gave ourselves 3 hours to errect the stand yesterday but as we had to parl a good MILE from the stand it took us 2 hours just to get the kit to the stand!  At 8pm yesterday we were done just when they were asking everyone to leave – Phew.  Tired and hungry we retired to the hotel for a meal and some shut eye.  What will today bring…………

Eve of Grand Designs

Not only have we been finalising the new brochure and finishing off the website over the past few months, we have been preparing for the Grand Designs show in Birmingham.

We have been constructed the demo flights all week and taking collection of the promotion items such as the branded rulers and USB sticks.  Frankly the office and showroom is currently a bit of a mess and I don’t suggest a visit for a week or two until everything goes back to normal.

The three new spiral display units look fantastic and this year we have invested in a large pop up banner for the rear of the stand.

Everything is now ready to be picked up tomorrow for the trip up north.  Exhibitions are always really tiring but we love them.  Of course ultimately they are about generating interest and orders but they give us the chance to talk ‘stairs’ for three days solid!!

Incidentally we still have three free tickets remaining – please get in touch on 01794 522444 to bag them quickly.


Grand Designs 2013 – Birmingham

We have a stand at Grand Designs 2013 at the NEC in Birmingham and would love to see you there.

Stand B30 is the place to be to see our three modern spiral staircase displays and to pick up our latest brochure (still being printed).

4th-6th October – we will be there to talk about your project and designer staircase requirements.  We also are down to our last three free tickets which will be issued on a first-come-first served basis.  Sucessful or not – we look forward to seeing you there.
