Space is in short supply as exhibitors rush to take part in the Doors, Windows and Facades Show at Interbuild 2000 next May. The UK's leading construction exhibition, which is more than six months away, has already sold 85 per cent of its floor space and is expecting a complete sell-out by the end of the year.
Doors, Windows and Facades is at the heart of Interbuild and will be held from 21-25 May in Hall 4 of the NEC in Birmingham. Every aspect of door and window technology and design will be featured as well as specialist areas for Architectural Hardware, Security and Fire Protection. Signed-up exhibitors include big names such as; LBPlastics, WHS Halo, Premdor, Andersen Windows, Schuco, Hormann Doors, Epwin, Vicaima, Winkhaus, Geze, Hewi, Eurocell, Titon, Avocet, Fr isco, BPT Automat ion , BC Technology, Hoppe , FAAC and Yale Security.
Sales for Interbuild 2000 are way ahead of schedule, and the speed with which floor space has been sold indicates the popularity and importance of the Interbuild exhibition. James Litchfield, director of LBPlastics, confirms this.
'As a company committed to product innovation we need to utilise every possible vehicle to keep specifiers informed of developments.
Interbuild provides the perfect platform to do this.'
New exhibitor WHS Halo symbolises the growing importance of the Interbuild exhibition. The company's director of commercial sales, Andrew Keir, explains, 'We have changed our allegiance to Interbuild from Glassex, where we have been exhibiting for the past 12 years, as we want our new product innovations to be part of the largest building exhibition in the country.'
The increasing attraction of the Interbuild exhibition is summarised by Stefan Luig, head of marketing at Schuco International.
'Interbuild is Schuco's ideal communication platform with its clients, ranging from developers to architects and fabricators. The co-operation between Montgomery Exhibitions and Emap, the changed date, the new format and the increased number of exhibitors will make Interbuild even more attractive.'
