Screwfix Live 2016 celebrates record breaking attendance

The event, which took place between 30th September and 2nd October at the Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre, broke records in terms of both visitor numbers and exhibitors.

Over 135 top brands were showcasing their latest products to tradespeople, serious DIY enthusiasts and their families. The weekend included live product demonstrations, competitions and lots of show deals and giveaways. Celebrity faces included footballer-turned-pundit Chris Kamara assisting with Screwfix’s football challenge, ‘Back of the Van’, ex-footballer Jimmy Bullard supporting Armstead Trade Paints and even the Dulux Dog made a personal appearance.

A huge range of categories were showcased including power tools, painting and decorating and workwear, to electrical and plumbing essentials.

Andrew Livingston, CEO of Screwfix, commented, ‘We’ve had fantastic success with Screwfix Live for the past four years now and I’m delighted that we’ve had another record breaking year in Farnborough. Screwfix Live is about bringing customers, suppliers and staff together. If we’ve learned anything in the last four years, it’s that this setting is invaluable to the trade and DIY enthusiasts. This annual event has exceeded our expectations at all levels and I could not be more proud of our staff.’
