Exhibitors thrilled with the launch of k+b design London
k+b design London closed its doors at the beginning of March, after delivering an innovative and forward-thinking event in the capital. Support was shown from the industry with an impressive visitor audience number of 8093 who attended across the three days.
Three-quarters of the visitor audience came from London and the South-East, with over a third from the interior design, architecture and developer communities, both key objectives for the launch of this event.
The event saw a strong presence from CAD innovators ArtiCAD and Autokitchen, along with international trend-setters Dansani, Salice, Rotpunkt, Cosentino and Blanco, all joined by a whole host of established British brands including Siamp, William Holland, Drew Forsyth, Aqualux, and Basically Trade.
All the exhibitors demonstrated a high calibre of product ranges, innovative solutions and ideas for the future of the industry.
"We've received some very positive feedback from both exhibitors and visitors of k+b design London," reports Jon Johnston, key account director for the event. "The show has not only delivered a timely platform to showcase innovative products for the forthcoming year, but our move alongside Ecobuild provided a great opportunity for buyers and suppliers to find everything they needed in the construction and design industries.
"The team are now looking ahead to the 2018 edition of kbb Birmingham, which will showcase additional future focused content, to deliver further value to the community."
Comments from across k+b design exhibiting brands:
* "We were genuinely delighted with the show. We not only signed up many more orders than we had anticipated, welcomed numerous existing customers and secured more than 200 relevant sales leads - we also spent quality time with several national retailers and leading suppliers, who we had not? expected to see at the show. More than a success, for ArtiCAD the show was something of a triumph!" Theresa Turner, ArtiCAD
* "An interesting mix of visitors, including interior designers and property developers. With only a few people here just for inspiration, overall the show delivered a solid trade buying audience." Bea Addis, Eporta
* "The exhibition was phenomenal! I was inundated with leading buyers and professionals. Because of k+b design London I have successfully brought my products to market and gained recognition with the leading names in the industry, as well as gaining a national distributor to distribute them. I couldn't ask for more." Nick Gontar, Inclusive Concepts.
* "We have surpassed our record number of visitors at our exhibition stand in excess of 500 people - and it's only day two!" Walter Gosling, Salice.
