It was a very successful first show for the new PHEX Tottenham event, held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last week.
More than 2,500 attendees turned up at the two-day show to learn all about the latest product innovations, get show-only discounts and deals, enter exclusive competitions, and attend engaging seminars and product demonstrations.
The show offered many visitors their first glimpse of Tottenham Hotspur’s new, state-of-the-art stadium, with hundreds of plumbers and gas engineers getting the opportunity to explore the stadium at length on a free stadium tour.
PHEX Tottenham was the perfect opportunity for tradespeople to find out about the latest technology from a number of top manufacturers, and many exhibitors reported strong interest in their products and services from engaged visitors at the show.
Brendan Hourican, National Sales & Marketing Manager at Circoflo Underfloor Heating, said: “The chance to exhibit at Tottenham Hotspur's new stadium seemed like an opportunity too good to miss and it didn't disappoint.
“The number of quality customers that came to the stand with a genuine interest in our products was one of the best yet.”
Nicola Fisher, PR & Communications Manager B2B at Worcester Bosch, said: “We were delighted to showcase our new Greenstar 8000 Lifestyle boilers at PHEX this year – particularly at such an impressive venue!
“The installers who visited the Worcester Bosch stand loved the hands on area and the opportunity to win one of our new innovative boilers! We’re awaiting final figures but our stand was one of the busiest at the event.”
Mark Edginton, Event Director at PHEX, said the exhibition team immediately saw the huge potential of hosting the event at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
He said: “We were keen to be the first trade event to be staged at this incredible venue. As soon as I arrived on build-up day, you could see that everything about the venue and exhibition hall represented the core values of PHEX.
“As always our clients made a tremendous effort to showcase their business and products and we were all excited for the days ahead. Our industry did not let us down, with over 2,500 attendees descending on Tottenham across the two days. This exceeded our expectations for the launch year and it was great to see first-hand the energy and level of commitment shown by the exhibitors and visitors alike.”
The next PHEX show will be held at Old Trafford in Manchester on 16-17 October, with the final show of the year taking place at Stamford Bridge in London on 13-14 November.
