Visitor numbers at the Totally DIY Show at the NEC in Birmingham have improved dramatically since last year from 2511 to an incredible 9372. This represents an increase of 375%.The figures appear to show that the decision to move the show from Earls Court to the NEC was inspired.
Exhibition Director James Murray did point out however that the move means that the figures do not represent a like for like comparison, as they also received quite a substantial number of “passing trade” visitors from the Spring Fair which was running at the same time. More accurate figures will be able to be used from next year. He says that the show will be working hard to improve and to develop it as the national show for the industry.
The show will take place next year on the 6 – 8 of February. Something for your diaries!
