Starting this Saturday, Grand Designs Live will take place at Excel, London, and it’s a great chance to see DesignBoard “in action”.
What you can expect to see at Grand Designs Live 2019 from the DesignBoard exhibition space
“We chose Grand Designs because it’s an interesting show,” says DesignBoard General Manager Antony Pasquini. “They don’t sell everything and anything and they’re quite specific to the home.” Grand Designs is also divided into specific sections. You’ll find DesignBoard, naturally enough, in the Grand Gardens section.
As with the recent Home Building and Renovation Show last month, this show is about reaching out to retail customers – very different from trade shows where we usually know around 95% of the people who visit our display. “Grand Designs is a huge brand in its own right,” says Antony, “and we’re expecting a huge footfall.”
Meeting the people who will actually live with DesignBoard at home is different from liaising with the trade. “For every single person there, the project is individual. The choice is an impulse based on the visual, and people don’t know the technical information, or the pros and cons of ingredients used in different composites.” It’s a different experience for Antony and his colleagues that they really enjoy. “It’s really nice because people see it and, if they instantly love it, then they get excited as they can envisage in their house,” says Antony.
DesignBoard Traditional, as featured here on a scheme from designer Anne Keenan, will feature prominently on the stand
Our stand will give you a clear idea of how DesignBoard composite decking can fit into your lifestyle, because our stand is designed to help you see its place. One person at the Home Building and Renovation Show even came and said, “I want my garden to be like this.”
Alongside a full deck of DesignBoard Traditional, which, given the number of visitors we’re expecting on the stand, will certainly demonstrate how well it suits high-traffic areas, and the complete range of colours, you’ll also get to enjoy the luxuriously verdant Vistagreen artificial green wall, a stylish firepit and chairs. Come and have a sit down!
Grand Designs will take place at Excel, London, from 4th to 12th May. Visit us on stand G91 to take advantage of our Special Show Discount. We’ll look forward to seeing you there!
