Another successful record breaking Screwfix Live

Screwfix Live 2017 inside

Now in its fifth year, Screwfix LIVE welcomed more visitors than ever before to the annual exhibition. The event, which took place between 29 September and 1 October at the Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre, broke records in terms of both visitor numbers and exhibitors.

Over 170 top brands showcased their latest products to tradespeople, serious DIYers and their families during the three day exhibition. With live product demonstrations, competitions, show deals and giveaways; fun and innovation was the order of the weekend. Football legend, Soccer AM Host and former decorator Jimmy Bullard even made a personal appearance and met some of the fans in attendance on Friday and Saturday.

With 53 first-time exhibitors, a huge range of new products were showcased from power tools, painting and decorating supplies and work wear, to electrical and plumbing essentials – something for any job at hand.

Graham Bell, CEO of Screwfix comments: “We’ve had fantastic success with Screwfix LIVE for the past four years now and I’m delighted that we’ve had yet another record-breaking year in Farnborough.

“Screwfix LIVE is about bringing together customers, suppliers and Screwfix staff.  If we’ve learned anything in the last five years it’s that this setting is invaluable to the trade and serious DIYers and the biggest event of its kind in the UK.
