2015 Future-Proof Building National Tradeshow Series

Hello Everyone

IMG_2482 intranet.jpgWhat a great year it has been so far, for the Future Proof Building (FPB) National Tradeshow Series. J. A. Russell Ltd/ Stewarts Electrical Supplies, FPB, Carters and Plumbing World have had great pleasure in hosting the shows, and we are certain they will continue to get even better through-out the year. Radcliffe Electrical; the trade shows are coming your way later this year, fun times!

The format of the shows this year in a word is ‘Massive!’ We have over 55 exhibitors in one room showcasing the latest innovations and best practice over a wide range of product categories within the electrical, building and plumbing trade.

Our workshop is on “Technology in the home”. The workshop focuses on taking full advantage of your home networking connections, through all your devices, plus home security options and much more detail on the technology sector. The great part about our workshop is; we give reference to our technology suppliers in attendance at the shows who can supply product to better your home networking and home security systems.

To follow is the attendance summary chart. The Auckland Central show got us off to a great start with 122 electricians. The Tauranga show was outstanding with 117 electricians around the room. A great effort from all the branches, thank you to all our staff who helped out at the shows, many of you stayed right to the very end to help pack down as well.

We’ve received a lot of positive feedback from customers; 

  • The workshops last for 15 minutes and take place in another room, therefore they do not interrupt the show.
  • By having Carters and Plumbing World at the same show, customers have the chance to visit them as well in the space of 3 hours.
  • The 2015 Mitsubishi Triton Ute – has been a major draw card to get customers along to the show.
  • Some happy customers have commented on the spot prizes they’ve walked away with.
  • Customers have interacted well with suppliers to help with current and upcoming work.
  • Customers enjoy the evening shows. 

Round 3 will kick off on Tuesday the 28th of July in Wellington, followed by Palmerston North and New Plymouth. With only a month to go, surrounding branches please encourage our customers to come along!
