This year Stonemarket took its new products for 2016 on the road to see as many of its builder's merchants, garden designers and contractor customers as possible.
For the last two years the annual Stonemarket event took place at Ryton near Coventry, however this year the Stonemarket team decided it was time to hit the road and take its offer to its customers by travelling to six venues across England, Scotland and Wales.
Over the course of the Road Show, hundreds of guests attended, and had the opportunity to ask Stonemarket's experts questions about the new range of products for 2016, the Stone Standard, and the patented NEXTPave paving system.
Stonemarket is the supplier of choice for garden designers, and those seeking a high-end look for their gardens and driveways. It offers an extensive range of products for gardens and driveways.
Geoff Moulton, Stonemarket's Trading Director, said: "This year we wanted to make it easier for our customers to attend which meant hitting the road and travelling around the country to showcase what we have to offer for 2016. I'm pleased to say that this was a resounding success and the 2015 Road Show saw a significant increase in attendees - more than treble that of last year.
"The reaction to our new products for 2016 has been fantastic, including our exciting range of natural products, sourced from all over the world."
He added: "The demonstration of our patented NEXTPave system brings innovation to two of our well loved Millstone and Yorkstone product ranges, by dramatically speeding up the installation time and improving the finished look of projects. This was particularly well received by our contractor members.
The introduction of seminars into this year's offering was also popular, the opportunity to understand the Stonemarket "˜Stone Standard' and our wish to drive the appreciation of product quality as part of a domestic project. "2015 has been a good year, and our road shows have set the bar high for 2016. The team and I will endeavour to deliver all we promised in the coming year, and I would like to thank everyone who took the time to visit one of the road shows for making them a great springboard for the coming year."
James Checkley of JCD Designs said: "Another excellent event from the team at Stonemarket! It's the best and most enjoyable way to keep up-to-date with the latest Stonemarket products - there were some very high quality new natural stone products being introduced to the range as well as some great product innovations and improvements.
"The Stone Standard and NEXTpave talks were very interesting and informative, and we enjoyed a very nice buffet lunch, which provided the perfect opportunity to talk to other visitors and discuss products with the Stonemarket team. For those in the industry, I would highly recommend attending a Stonemarket Roadshow in 2016."
