The biennial Hardware Show, is the sector’s biggest networking, learning and promotional platform. It is a showcase for innovation and new product launches and a perfect opportunity to meet new and existing customers.
There will be four key streams to the show – HOME – GARDEN – BUILD and DIY and there will be no better place to find out about the latest products and services on the market for each of these sectors than at the official HAI show. Indeed, the HAI’s success in convincing the government to introduce a Home Renovation Tax Incentive Scheme has given an added boost to all participants in the sector and by extension to the show.
Tom Finn, Commercial Head, Amalgamated Hardware plc. said: “Amalgamated Hardware is delighted to commit its full support behind Hardware Association Ireland’s ‘Hardware Show 2015’. As this will be the Association’s official tradeshow, we will be encouraging all Topline members to attend and use this unique occasion to meet with existing and new suppliers, evaluate new product opportunities, and network with fellow Topline members and other merchants in an informal setting. Hardware Association Ireland is the ‘official voice’ of our sector and an increasingly essential support for all companies operating within it; we are very pleased to back its plans for a great event in February 2015.”
The Hardware Show 2015 is an event organised by the industry for the industry. Its organisation is being driven by an influential and informed trade show committee, which has already begun planning on making THE HARDWARE SHOW an unmissable event for both merchants and suppliers.
The trade show committee comprises:
Said Niall Nugent, Sales & Marketing Director Ames True Temper Europe. “True Temper Ltd proudly support the 2015 HAI trade show at the Citywest Conference & Event Centre. The very best opportunity to showcase your brand and meet with the key decision makers, all under one roof. Innovation plays a huge part in our sector and no better way to present new products and concepts to your customers, both existing and potential, than exhibiting at the Hardware Association Ireland show. In particular we welcome the initiatives proposed to attract a wider range of companies in various sectors such as gardening and pet etc. This is our industry show for our industry”.
The show also coincides with Hardware Associations Ireland`s premier social event, the HAI PRESIDENT’S BALL. This is a great opportunity to meet and greet old friends and new in an informal, social setting, and it is always a very enjoyable occasion for everyone associated with the industry and their partners, both merchants and suppliers.
