Win a 'Monster' £3000 worth of stock and stands from Draper at the Totally Shows

Published:  02 November, 2012

COVENTRY: As part of a new ‘Monster Deals’ initiative by the Totally Shows, Draper Tools has set the ball rolling with a truly giant lucky draw for one retailer to walk away from the show with £3000 worth of Draper Tools stock and stands.

“These are ‘show only’ deals - you have to visit the show to take part, and we’re encouraging all our exhibitors to come up with one ‘Monster Deal’ that will make a trip to the show worthwhile,” said Paul Grinsell, sales director for show organiser, Brintex. “We will have an area at the show dedicated to highlighting all the Monster Deals, so that visitors can make the most of them. We’re delighted that Draper has come up with such a great offer – which retailer, big or small, wouldn’t welcome such a great boost to their margins?”

Exhibitor numbers for the show are continuing to grow steadily. The latest suppliers to join the exhibitor line-up include Bosmere Products, which is taking a stand in the bira direct pavilion, Eureka Manufacturing from Ireland with its range of space saving, wall mounted furniture, leading security wholesaler Security Express, Decorative Stone Panel, with its collection of natural looking, easy to fit interior and exterior wall coverings, and brand new ladder accessory, LadderLimb™, which was featured recently on BBC Radio 2’s Simon Mayo Drivetime show in the programme’s regular innovations spot edited by BBC business reporter Rebecca Pike.

Exhibitor renewals from 2012 include quality brush manufacturer, L G Harris, also taking part in the bira pavilion, and wood finish experts Rustins. In addition RB UK shelving and storage will also make a welcome return to the show’s exhibitor line-up, after a break last year.

Online registration for visitors will go live from Monday, November 5, and will be supported by a new advertisement campaign across the key DIY and tool trade media.

This year exhibitors have the opportunity to directly influence which of their regular buyers and potential customers are invited to attend the show. Brintex is investing in a new tele-marketing campaign to gather the critical information from exhibitors, which will be backed up with personal invitations and, of course, the offer of a hot, sit down lunch at the show.
