Annual event for the independents
Stonemarket showcased its stunning range of landscaping products to over 200 builders merchants, landscapers and garden designers at its exclusive two day event last week.
The event walked visitors through Stonemarket’s full range of patio and driveway products including a range of new products for 2015.
With a selection of high-end products to transform gardens and driveways, from British materials to natural stones from across the world, Stonemarket is at the cutting edge of landscaping product development, with an innovative design team with an eye for garden trends.
A number of stunning new concrete and natural stone patio and driveway products were displayed at the event, as well as Stonemarket’s brand new range of Vitrified Paving, a material which offers stunning good looks, combined with impressive technical performance.
Visitors were also given an exclusive sneak preview of the 2015 brochure cover which features the brand new natural stone product Stonespar. Available in two pre-blended mixes, this cutting-edge option can be used in a multitude of applications.
As well as products displayed on eye-catching stands and in mini-brochures, merchants were able to take advantage of special show deals on stone products whilst browsing the event’s ‘Stone Market’.
Product demonstrations also kept guests entertained as they watched the installation of Templeton Driveway Setts and the Fast Point system in action, whilst one of Stonemarket’s stone experts gave a presentation on how to tell good quality stone from bad.
Darren Hoyland, Branch Manager at Gibbs & Dandy in Pudsey, West Yorkshire said: “I really enjoyed the event. There were some really exciting new products on display and we’re looking forward to being able to stock them in the New Year.
“The product displays were fantastic and they’ve given us some inspiration for our own displays. There were some really good deals available on the day for stone purchases which we took advantage of, and we thought the stone presentation and product installation talks were really informative.”
James Checkley, Managing Director of JDC Gardens Ltd said: “We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the recent Stonemarket designer event, which was extremely well organised. The factory tour and stone talk were very interesting, with some excellent new products on show, especially the vitrified paving range which we look forward to using on projects in the New Year.”
James concluded: “I would recommend the event to all designers and contractors that want to get a better understanding of Stonemarket products and natural stone in general.”
Sales Director at Stonemarket, Geoff Moulton said: “This is the second year that we’ve run this event and it just keeps getting better. At Stonemarket we’re constantly developing new products, and this event allows our merchant partners and members of our landscaper and garden designer networks to see them first-hand and to talk to our experts.
“People travelled from all corners of the UK, so many thanks must go to them and everyone else who came along and helped to make the event such a resounding success. We look forward to doing it again next year!”
All new products will be available to order from January 2015.
