Ecobuild 2014 was great for us!! We had 3-400 people visit the stand over the three days and some of these people had very exciting projects that they want us to get involved with. They range from small extensions up to housing schemes of several hundred houses so a real spread.
Once again our unique range of products proved interesting to visitors and even though we had a small stand in amongst some giant ones, we had lots of interest (you can feel somewhat inferior next to the likes of Dulux who spend over £100,000 on their stand!!). We had lots of enquiries about the clay PCM boards, the Cemwood fill material, the Lithotherm and the innovative wood fibre insulation systems from Unger-Diffutherm, all of which will hopefully lead to some great projects.
The show itself had shrunk from the heady days of 2011 when the whole of ExCeL was used for the exhibition. That being said about 50% of that was solar panel suppliers from the far east so having it a bit smaller is much better and allows you to more easily see what is on show. However, it is still so big that you really can’t see it all in a day and several of our customers actually stayed in hotels over night to be able to see the whole exhibition over 2 days and also catch the seminars that were going on.
All in all we were really pleased with how it went but I am glad to be sat behind my desk again, in comfy shoes, on a soft carpeted floor, in a chair, not talking that much and not standing for 10 hours a day!! I also have to say a big ‘thank you’ to Sabine Groeneveld from Unger and Christian Nialki from EBB for all their hard work on the stand. I couldn’t have managed it without them!!
