November date for Howarth Timber’s trade day

Published:  02 August, 2016

The Howarth Timber trade day is returning in style in 2016 and more than 70 of the UK's suppliers are already on board.

The Howarth Timber and Building Supplies Trade Day was a success in 2015, when the company celebrated its 175th anniversary with an exhibition at Leeds United's Elland Road Conference Centre, and the event is back for a second year on 24 November 2016.

Brands from across the building industry will be travelling to Yorkshire to showcase the latest products and offer deals to attendees, who can also take the opportunity to get advice from some of the UK's foremost building specialists. A number of seminars will take place throughout the day, giving attendees the chance to hear from specially selected speakers with interesting perspectives on how the building industry is developing in 2016.

As well as product demonstrations and expert seminars, the trade day is full of competitions and giveaways. The first 100 visitors through the door will get a free breakfast, and Howarth has 250 pairs of tickets for Leeds United’s match with Aston Villa to give away to people who spend more than £200 plus VAT.

Nicholas Howarth, managing director of Howarth Timber, said: "The Howarth Trade Day Bonanza is about bringing customers together with the beating heart of the building industry, and celebrating the fantastic work being done by suppliers, product designers, merchants and tradespeople. The 2015 event created a wonderful atmosphere of cooperation and collaboration, and the sharing of expertise in all directions was great to see and be a part of.”
