A hugely successful Show for us, that was not without funny incidents that included ‘lost’ edging, cancelled hotel rooms and no dinner…

With a 4.30am start on March 2, Dan, Gail, Joni and Nat arrived at Ecobuild to set up the SureSet Stand at the Excel. After unloading, Dan and Nat laid 12m² of 6mm Barley Beach at a depth of 16mm on top of 8mm plywood to the SureSet Stand.

The SureSet wouldn’t be cured by the time Ecobuild shut at 8pm, so the Team cleared up and reloaded the van; deciding to ‘dress’ the Stand the following day. Cue cancelled hotel rooms and no dinner…

On March 3, with another early start, Dan, Gail, Joni and Nat arrived at Ecobuild in plenty of time to get the Stand ready before doors opened to the public at 10am. Cue ‘lost’ edging and the making of improvised ‘tools’ to retrieve it…

SureSet, Stand S4104 was ready, complete with 18th Birthday balloons, SureCell® installed, water feature demonstrating permeability, DIY table prepared and time to spare!

Ben and Hugh arrived on March 3, to ‘man’ the Stand with Joni for the next three days. The stream of visitors was steady with lots of interest in both SureSet and SureCell, our own sub-base, which was installed within the Stand. Our impressive new water feature was proving a popular attraction. Cue more cancelled hotel rooms…

On the last day, March 4, Dan and Ned travelled back to Ecobuild to ‘break down’ the Stand – which was a slightly quicker job than putting it up! Everyone was safely back home by 10pm that evening.

We are all now busy getting the brochure and sample requests out, as quickly as possible, to everyone who requested them at the Show.
