PHEX Chelsea has capped off a year of fantastic shows with one of the busiest and most productive exhibitions we’ve ever had, thanks to all of our amazing visitors and exhibitors.
Thousands of visitors descended on Stamford Bridge, home of Chelsea FC, across 14 and 15 November to check out everything on offer at PHEX. From new products to free pie and mash at lunchtime, there was a ton to see and do.
Alaina Turner, Marketing Communications Manager at Wirquin, said: “It’s the fifth time Wirquin has exhibited at PHEX Chelsea and we had the busiest stand to date. We were attending to specifically promote our new product innovations. All the products were really well received and we had a lot of fun in the process. There is a great atmosphere at the show and our NEO free samples flew out, as did our new literature and the free gifts we offered of air fresheners and Wirquin pens.
"We also used the stand to promote our on the day focus groups to gain valuable thoughts and opinions from such an important audience for Wirquin. We were also engaged with social media while on the stand and had an increase of very relevant followers as a result. We put a lot of effort in to make it a success and we will be attending again next year.”
#PHEXGIVES was a massive highlight of the show, with a range of amazing prizes on offer from some of your favourite exhibitors, while new products were dotted throughout the show floor, from Carrara & Matta’s new Push n’Clean toilet seats to Wirquin’s Neo basin and sink traps, and much more.
Mark Edginton, Show Organiser at PHEX, said: “I have been reminded on so many occasions at PHEX Chelsea why I have dedicated nearly eighteen years of my career to this sector. Our clients and visitors alike have such passion and commitment to this market, and they certainly know how to end the year off in style!
“I’ve had the pleasure of networking with long established and new contacts all week, and working alongside a fantastic team on PHEX and HVP. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing packed aisles, busy stands, happy folks, and thriving hospitality suites.
“We have been organising the Chelsea event for almost 25 years and to see it consistently grow in strength year on year is a true endorsement of the true values of the PHEX format. The positive feedback we have all received from our clients, trade partners and visitors makes it all so worthwhile.”
Thank you to all of our exhibitors and visitors both at PHEX Chelsea and across the whole of 2018, and watch this space for all of our exciting developments in 2019 as we go into the 25th anniversary of the show and drive the exhibitions toward new heights.
