The Hardware Show 2019, supported by Intact Software, takes place at Citywest on Sunday 17 and Monday 18 February.
The official show of Hardware Association Ireland (HAI) – the industry’s trade association – has become the largest and most important event for the sector, both in Ireland and the wider UK/Ireland marketplace. The 2017 Show at the RDS Simmonscourt was the largest show ever with 163 exhibitors, over 3,800 sqm of space sold, and 2,000+ visitors during the course of the two-day event. With increased activity in both the commercial and residential building sectors, as well as continued growth in the renovation, maintenance and improvement of buildings and homes, the Hardware Show 2019 will continue to be the leading show for retailers and merchants across Ireland to visit for home, garden build and DIY inspiration, to connect with current suppliers, discover new ones and find innovative products.
Architects and Specifiers
This year the organisers invite architects and specifiers to meet at the Hardware Association Ireland stand in the centre of the Hardware Show 2019 exhibition hall in Citywest at 2.30pm on Monday 18 February to network with heavy-end building material exhibitors and find out what’s new on the market, recent developments and build relationships.
This year the organisers welcome suppliers from Italy at the exclusive Italian Pavilion. HAI is building strong relations with colleagues in Italy that see Ireland as a growing export market. Identified with style and quality, Visitors can look forward to viewing over 20 Italian suppliers who have invested in exhibiting at the 2019 show and bring their unique Dolce Vita over the two-day show duration.
Young apprentices from the Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) and Cork Institute of Technology (CIT) make a welcome return to the show following their debut in 2017. The Skills Zone is where these talented apprentices will showcase their skills in the areas of brickwork, electrical and plumbing. The development of these skills is now critical to the continued growth of the construction industry to cope with demand now and in the future.
