Fresh Faces

With over 50 new exhibitors at the show this year, allow enough time to meet some new faces and review their ranges and flooring offers.

Kane Thomas, Event Manager of Ocean Media Group which bought the show last year, said: “Performance, looks and correct installation continue to be key industry talking points.

“Investing time in meeting the people behind the brands and getting hands-on with the products makes specifying so much easier – you get a true sense of a product’s performance and the people too, so you can be confident in your choices when it really matters.”

So, look out for first-timer Oneflor-Europe, a global LVT brand, based in Belgium and delivering flooring systems for both commercial and domestic use anywhere in Europe within in a few days.
