Stand Sales Well Ahead For Glassex ’06

EMAP Maclaren, organiser of Glassex, has announced advanced sales for the 2006 event are well ahead of the previous event year-on-year.

More than 50% of the floor space has been contracted by a total of 66 companies, 20 more than for the similar period last year. A further 25% of the net stand space has contracts issued on it, with contracts only issued following tacit agreement for that space with exhibitors.

A number of exciting names have confirmed their participation at Glassex ’06, which takes place between 5th and 8th March, including systems giants Plastmo, and VEKA, which returns after its cautious return to the event last year, Heattend, K2 Glass, KBE Window Systems, Nice Door Panels, and UK Panels. Of considerable note is Selecta, which has doubled the size of its stand for 2006 following its results at this year’s Glassex, and roof giant Ultraframe strengthens its support for Glassex with a firm commitment to the event.

With the current Glassex management known to be cautious in its announcements regarding stand sales, the industry can be optimistic about the prospects for next year’s event with these figures based purely on stands for which paperwork has been produced. Steve Redman, Event Manager for Glassex is, nonetheless, very buoyant: “The industry has itself undergone some quite profound changes in recent years and these have been reflected at Glassex. But the re-positioning of Glassex to fully embrace other home improvement sectors has been very successful, with public sector visitor numbers trebling last event.

“Many companies are also realising that, planned intelligently, events such as Glassex actually provide a highly efficient means of reaching existing and potential customers. I remain cautious but it is difficult not to be very optimistic about Glassex 2006, as an indication of the industry’s short term recovery.”

Glassex '06 will take place at the NEC (National Exhibition Centre) in Birmingham from 5th to the 8th of March.
