Following extensive research and after 21 years, the Totally DIY Totally Tools show will move to a new two day format for 2016, reflecting the shift in trading and buying patterns that are becoming increasingly evident in the home improvement market.

Offering visitors a chance to be a part of such a key networking event, the simultaneous staging of the shows together with the Industry Awards – from the leading magazine DIY Week – will make this year’s exhibition a focal point of the industry calendar.

The two day show taking place between 16th and 17th February 2016 will also feature a packed seminar programme where leading industry figures and experts will present their ideas, giving visitors and exhibitors the opportunity to learn about future industry developments and stay up to date with the latest industry trends.

Backed by long standing partners BHETA (British Home Enhancement Trade Association) who have greatly invested in up and coming innovators within the industry, the New Product Showcase will once again be a central part of the exhibition, a place where visitors can see what the next generation of product designers are launching to the market and giving buyers the opportunity to source new and exciting offerings for their customers.

The Totally Shows also enjoy support from the British Hardware Federation, the country’s top wholesalers, symbol marketing groups and associations which will be part of the UK’s most important DIY trading event.

Is DIY a lost art?

As time goes by, the art of do-it-yourself when it comes to activities around the home and garden is fast becoming more and more of a lost art.
