New flooring show for Harrogate
01-Jun-10by Annie Byrne
A new Harrogate flooring show will launch in September to take the place of the relocated National Floor Show (NFS).Last year it was announced that the NFS would relocate from the Harrogate International Centre (HIC) to the NEC Birmingham in 2010 to encourage more visitors. Although originally planned for June, the date for the NFS has now been moved to September as well.After receiving multiple requests from NFS exhibitors to maintain a September Harrogate show, event organiser David Wildman decided to launch the Harrogate Flooring Show at the HIC.Wildman says: “The setting for the Harrogate Show within the town centre is, for many exhibitors, more conducive to business than inner city or outer city sites. The friendly atmosphere makes it easy for exhibitors to meet their buyers informally and do business.”The HIC has two new exhibition halls planned to open in autumn 2011, which will add 3,300sqm of space to the venue.
