2010 will be remembered as the year of the flooring industry expo showdown with two flooring shows planned for the same week. For many years the manufacturers of wood flooring and other flooring industry suppliers have brought their new products to the distinguished Harrogate flooring halls. However this year sees the show split with the original National Flooring Show event moving to the NEC and a rival show, The Harrogate Flooring Show taking place in the original venue.
In celebrating 50 years of the show in Harrogate, the Harrogate Flooring Show will be holding a drinks reception in the stunning Royal Hall on the evening of the opening day, making the most of the tradition and heritage that the site offers. A number in excess of 100 have already signed up for the show, many of whom will be hoping that the move to an opening day on a Sunday will bring in a large number of wood flooring professionals that are new to flooring shows. Many contractors and small retail businesses who cannot afford to take a day out of their busy midweek schedule will be able to take a day out on the Sunday.
The show opens on the Sunday 5th of September at The Harrogate International Centre at 10.00 and runs through to 17.00 on the Tuesday the 7th September. In a new move to try and to increase the appeal and national reach of the event, ten executive shuttle shuttles are being organised from around the country with the support of key exhibitors.
For those keen to see all that the wood flooring industry has to offer, they could take in both the Harrogate Flooring show and the National Floor Show event which runs from the 7th to the 9th of September 2010 at the centralised location of the NEC, Birmingham.
The National Floor Show will also have the added benefit of running alongside the interiors event, The Autumn Fair International, and of course the early September slot is an ideal time just before the traditional busy autumn period in the wood flooring industry.
As well as retaining a large number of exhibitors at the show, The National Floor show has a number of new exhibitors to the show including V4 wood flooring. For the full range of V4 wood floors please contact us on the Source Wood Floors sales line 08456 021781.
