Essential Install Live! North opened its doors on October 15 and proved an immediate hit with a steady stream of high quality visitors making their way into EventCity to enjoy a wide array of presentations, demonstrations and install information.

David Kitchener, MD of All Things Media, the company responsible for organising the show comments: “We are absolutely thrilled with the performance of Essential Install Live! North. The show operates in a challenging environment where the needs of getting on-site work completed means installers need a very good reason to attend and the support the show received really underlined the quality of the experience it delivers.

“With the success of Essential Install Live! South moving to two days this year and adding a commercial floor for 2015, you could be forgiven for thinking the Northern show might struggle, but not a bit of it, the show has developed its own identity and value and we look forward to improving and maybe even expanding the event for next year. A huge thank you to everyone one who exhibited and visited, we sincerely hope you found the show useful.”

CI social media was highly active during the event with many taking to twitter to express their support for the show.
