Founder of the W exhibition brand, Montgomery, has introduced Elements, a new components show taking place at the NEC on the 2nd – 5th October 2016.
Working along side the long-standing woodworking machinery and materials exhibition, W16, Elements will feature a wide range of finishing products for the KBB, furniture production and interior design market. Stands will include the very latest wirework and storage solutions, hardware, décors and edging, components and materials from the UK, Europe and further afield.
The only components show in the UK, Elements will provide visitors with an exclusive opportunity to see the latest products and prototypes right here in the UK and the lineup of big name companies includes brand leaders like Döllken, Ostermann, Hranipex, David Clouting and Quinn Global.
With half the exhibition area already sold and a strong line-up already confirmed, the four-day event is creating a fresh approach to trade fairs. In addition to stands, visitors will be able to attend seminars held by leading industry figures and experience three interactive zones:
The Innovation Zone will showcase the latest design innovations on the market and promote newly launched products, whilst offering visitors an opportunity to meet the manufacturers face to face.
The Best Practice Zone will offer visitors practical advice relating to the industry. Specialist recruitment agencies, health and safety officers, business finance gurus and marketing experts will be on hand throughout the event to offer advice and guidance to those already working in the industry and those interested in a career in the sector.
The Competition Zone will feature a live, interactive competition where college students from across the UK compete to win valuable work experience with one of the biggest names in the industry. Working closely with Didac Training College, a winner will be announced on the final day of the show.
Lisa Campagnola, event manager for Elements, adds: “With a history of running events in the building, construction and woodworking sectors, it seemed fitting to add a show to the Montgomery portfolio that completes the manufacturing cycle. The UK market has relied heavily on European component shows in past years. Now, with the launch of Elements, visitors can experience the very latest products from the UK, Europe and further afield at home at the NEC this October.”
