Our first UK trade show at ExCeL London

Landing in London

In June 2018 we attended our first ever trade show in the UK. Held at the London ExCeL, the Facilities Management Show was a real insight for us into the British market and what we can look forward to when we launch our products there.

London Excel Tradeshow

The Building

Located in London Docklands, the Exhibition Centre building opened in November 2000 and has since has 20 million visitors through its doors. It has seen world leaders, convention attendees, and more at such events as the 2009 G-20 London Summit, London Marathon registration, and for the London Olympics and Paralympics 2012. ExCeL London is undoubtedly an innovative building, with a purpose.

Setting up for the trade show meant wearing Steel Cap boots and high visibility outerwear for everyone on the stand – even the delivery team.

What did the UK think of our bins?

With increased awareness of sustainability in the UK, it seems there’s a real interest in how businesses can best implement a recycling strategy into their workplaces. Overall, the experience of the show was very promising, with a great reaction to our brand and to our beautiful bins.
