With Stihl UK being the latest big name to sign-up, joining other industry majors such as Kubota, Aco, Probst, Boddingtons and Instarmac, The Hard Landscaping Show and World of Paving organisers Marwood Events have announced details of the events scheduled to take place through the two days of the shows on the 24th and 25th of March 2010 at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry.
Pre-registering visitors are impressed with the show line-up : “We’ve worked hard at making these real events, genuine working shows” Event Director Steven Callaghan told The Landscaper , “of course there will be many different types of paving on display but there will also be drainage of all types with emphasis on SUDS products, specialist gravel retention systems, a wide range of digging and specialist earth moving equipment, mechanical handling and laying, specialist hand tools, diamond drilling and cutting along with specialist cleaning products such as power washers and a wide range of paving treatments for sealing and anti-stain”.
Specifiers, engineers and installers alike will be impressed by the best range of bedding mortars and jointing compounds ever seen at any event in the UK and a live installation masterclass of sett laying that will run throughout the shows will be just one of a number of top class features that will be supported by an extensive range of CPD seminars that will interest visitors from both technical and design backgrounds.
Demonstrations of the latest in machine laying of block paving and mechanised slab handling and laying technology by World market leaders Optimas and Probst will create a lot of interest and, in the adjacent demo area, two more World market leaders, Lafarge and HTC, will be presenting concrete polishing demonstrations with the wide range of fabulous finishes that can be achieved with their Artevia™ decorative concrete technology.
Claudia de Yong’s Artisan Avenue will showcase a selection of the Best of British crafts brought together by this award winning garden designer featuring a wide variety of superb bespoke pieces guaranteed to enhance any hard landscaping project such as hand crafted garden furniture, wrought iron work and hand made lighting.
“And it’s still not too late to enter the project of the year competitions” adds Steven, “supported by exhibitors such as Lafarge and Probst, we are offering some great prizes for the winners plus valuable publicity – every little helps in today’s tough market place” he concludes.
