A selection of quotes from satisfied exhibitors following the 2012 event...
It was a great platform to launch our new products which has generated a lot of interest and future sales leads… Monday was our busiest day by far and being linked with the Spring Fair has made a huge difference and definitely helped sales.
Phil Gibbins, Sales Director, Barretine Products
We presented our products to buyers old and new, and we were most impressed with every area of the exhibition. Totally DIY was superb for us, and our very first time at the NEC in our present form, thank you to Paul and all at Brintex... memorable in every way...
Tony and Martin Bollom, Briwax International
I had a good feeling after the exhibition. There were plenty of companies coming to us with their demands. Companies who we had never met if we would have stayed away. Great atmosphere. Thanks.
Gilles Quaegebeur, Commercial Director, Avasco Industries
The Totally Tools Show has provided us with a number of good potential trade customers. We will look at exhibiting at this show again.
Roland Llewellin, Genpower
We had a very successful show, it was our first year at the Totally DIY Show and we have had a great response from people about our products. We gained contact with some great buyers current and new, so all in all a good show for us.
Kim Aldred, Sales & Marketing Assistant, Haxnicks
As usual the quality of visitors was excellent. Our immediate impression is positive, with strong potential for directly attributable new and increased business. We will be back in 2012.
Wendy Rowley, King Dick Tools
The show was a definite success for us, with lots of positive feedback on all of our new products! Our demo areas were particularly good at drawing crowds onto the stand. We look forward to seeing the Totally DIY show continue to flourish next year.
Helen Kirby, Marketing Manager, Everbuild Building Products
The show was for us a success. We met quite a lot of our clients and even more people who are interested in our products. So with a good follow up we can make it even more successful!
Stephan Nugteren, Account Manager, VETO B.V.
This was the first time that we had exhibited at the show since it moved to the NEC from London. We produced a good number of leads from visitors to our stand and also were visited by a number of existing accounts that provided us with the opportunity to
introduce new products and develop our relations with them. From a visitor perspective we certainly found that Sunday was our busiest day for independents visiting our stand.
Tony Higginson, Business Development Manager, Connect Distribution Services
Totally Tools is a busy exhibition, and it does attract visitors who we really want to talk to. We met many interested parties and will be building relationships with these companies for mutual benefit in the future. This year's show attracted a varied range of visitors, many of whom were very interested in our Dust Free Sanding message into the Industry.
Julie Starkey, Marketing Controller, Mirka Abrasives
First of all I would like to thank you for the professional organisation of the show. There are not that many chances to present our complete product portfolio in the UK and therefore the Totally DIY show has become an important event for us - especially since it
was moved from London to Birmingham. We do now see more existing and potentially new customers from England, N.I., Ireland and Scotland and the contacts from last year turned out to be very profitable for us - hopefully again this year.
