Grand Designs Live 2012

We have just finished our first trade show for Health Mate UK at Grand Designs Live held at Excel, London. The show was held over 9 days including 2 weekends, one being the May bank holiday. On our stand we had three of our sauna models on show – the 1 seater (now named the wardrobe model by many visitors at the show), the 3 seater and our 4/5 seater (the one with the two women lying down shown in many of our advertisements).

The show was very busy most days, especially weekends and our stand received lots and lots of inquisitive interest. My husband, my father and I were on the stand and there were many times when all three of us were there chatting to three or more couples/groups of people. Most people had never heard of a far infrared sauna so much of the time was spent educating them about the sauna cabins and the many benefits of far infrared therapy. The response was amazing – from people originally looking for a steam sauna now wanting a far infrared sauna to others not even looking at saunas now really keen to fit one of our cabins into their homes somehow. We had people wanting to place them in spare bedrooms, garages, cellars, sheds, summer houses, conservatories and swimming pool houses to name a few.

It was great to meet so many people. Amazing how many of the show’s visitors are planning or in the middle of major refurbishment or building projects. Some very interesting ideas out there!  It was fantastic to meet so many nice people and to hear about their plans and dreams.

It was also interesting to mingle with the other neighbouring stands – the ventilation company Airflow, Granite & Marble specialists, some very elegant looking mosaic bath tubs plus a very cool gadget toothpaste dispenser, X-Paste.

After the success of exhibiting at this show, we are very much looking forward to Health Mate UK’s next live trade show event.
