The largest of the nine annual Homebuilding & Renovating Shows across the UK each year, the NEC show is one of the highlights of the year for IDSystems and home to the largest exhibition stand we have ever built.
Planning for our 120sqm stand almost as soon as the doors closed at the event in 2017 and for the last twelve months our operations, logistics and marketing teams have been hard at work updating and revising the stand to incorporate even more innovative glazing solutions and award-winning systems, including a wide range of product ideas that you won't find on any other stand at the show.
This year more than twenty products will be on display, from the headline acts such as theEDGE2.0 our ultra-slim sliding doors with incredibly narrow 20mm sightlines and vistaline our innovative Swiss designed slide & turn doors, right through to a frameless glass lantern, glass balustrade and examples of our contemporary aluminium windows.
Unlike the majority of exhibitors at the show each element of our stand is designed, manufactured and built at the show by IDSystems staff, as with the attention to detail of our products this ensures a high-quality finish to the stand and enables each product to perform perfectly despite being housed within a temporary structure.
Each product is installed in a 'real' setting, allowing customers to picture the system exactly as it would appear when fitted in their home. Whilst this nearly trebles the amount of work required compared to housing the displays doors within a simple outer frame it enables visitors to the show to understand exactly how the doors fit into an opening or how the windows work.
Whilst the exhibition does not open until Thursday 22nd March our fleet of lorries and vans will be carefully packed at our base in Norfolk almost a week earlier than that and will be on site at the NEC from the preceding Sunday. The stand will involve a team of 10 working long hours for the four days to ensure the finished result is perfect when the show opens and the same team will be back in Birmingham four days later to reverse the process and carefully take the stand apart during exhibition breakdown.
If you are heading to the NEC for the show you'll find us on stand B131 close to the main entrance to the hall and you can register for two free tickets to the show (until Tuesday 20th March) by clicking here.
