Over 100 exhibitors participated in the United Hardware trade show which took place at the Citywest Convention Centre recently. Apart from product displays, there were also a number of informative seminars. These included presentations on St Gobain’s new GE Soft Touch Insulation; the Aqualux range from Dulux; Maximising Bostic Adhesive sales; Ronseal New Product Demonstration; and how to up-sell flues by MI Flues.

The New Product area generated a great deal of interest with 120 new lines on offer. Winner of the best new product award was St Gobain for its new Isover  G3 mineral insulation roll. The attendance on the day was very good with over 80% of the membership who came along actually doing business.
