Welcome to the
KBB 2014 Review - Part 4
In our other life, John and I produce a weekly e-zine for the cleaning, hygiene and health & safety industry, which goes out to more than 100,000 readers in 148 countries around the world. Exhibitions are held in many different countries and as John and I produce ‘Dailies’ on behalf of the organisers of several of them, we get to walk around a lot of miles of exhibition halls filled with cleaning equipment!
It’s struck us over the years, the lengths to which some of the manufacturers will go, to ‘glam up’ their cleaning cloths, mop buckets, scrubbing machines and graffiti removal kits etc, to make them stand out from the crowd and make sure everyone remembers them after the event.
The KBB industry of course, doesn’t really need to go to such lengths as most of what’s on show is pretty glamorous anyway, but one stand stopped us in our tracks for its sheer ingenuity and I simply have to mention it in the Jewels from Spain item below…
Finally, we’ve just heard that Gorenje’s HomeCHEF built-in oven has won an International Red Dot Award, in the Product Design category – so our congratulations to Gorenje (www.gorenje.co.uk) too.
