Some 160 exhibitors attended Home Hardware’s Autumn trade show, held last Wednesday (September 24) at Silverstone in Northampton
DKB was voted the Best Display Stand at the event, earning DKB employees Tracey Bedborough and Jo Adger a cash prize of £100 and a glass trophy. Fiskars received the runner up prize of £50.
The awards were judged by an independent panel and presented by Home Hardware chairman David Adams. He said: “As this was our first trade show at Silverstone, we were particularly keen for our members and suppliers to really enjoy the event. I’m delighted so many of our suppliers have embraced the new venue and have taken greater pride in their stands. DKB worked extremely hard to create an eye-catching, interactive stand which attracted new and existing customers. Their demonstration of various kitchen tools and gadgets provided additional interest to retailers and their staff”.
A draw held during the show raised £700 to be split equally between Cancer Research and The Rainy Day Trust. Home Hardware said it ‘would like to thank all members, suppliers and staff who generously contributed towards these worthy charities’.
