It’s been a fantastic year for us at The Door and Floor Centre – not to mention a very busy one. Biggest highlights were featuring in the autumn edition of SelfBuild Magazine and taking part in their Dublin SelfBuild Expo which was held in Citywest Hotel recently, Sept ’17. For businesses like us who are in the building trade the exhibition proved an amazing opportunity to showcase services and products to many customers – and in our case – those building their dream home or those planning on extending their existing one.
With over 150 stands and 40,000 visitors attending the SelfBuild shows each year it was important for us here at The Door and Floor Centre to make a great impression and to stand-out from the rest of our competitors. To do this we built a stand that would recreate our new 5,000 sq. ft. showroom in Navan with its exclusive and full range of products (including over a 100 different kind of flooring and 60 internal doors plus external doors, individualised handles and locks). The stand would also showcase our newer range of products (laminate herringbone floors and our new door size, 7ft x 3ft). Preparation work for the exhibition was enormous and in the end it took the lads here, Dugy and Rimis, a whole week to manufacture and build the stand – plus another three days to install it at Citywest Hotel. Given the positive feedback we received it was well worth the huge effort as it provided potential customers with what we envisaged – an immersive walk-through experience of what their dream home can and could look like.
Two months on from the SelfBuild show and we’ve already expanded our customer base nationally, travelling as far as Galway, Limerick and Carlow to help customers create their dream home.
At The Door and Floor Centre we like to say thank you to all our customers, existing and new, for coming to visit and support us at the SelfBuild Expo. We’ve already booked our place for next year, 2018, so hope to see you all there!
