Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre has confirmed the return of Screwfix LIVE to the venue in the autumn of this year.

Increasing to 9,500 square metres in exhibition space and 170 leading trade suppliers, this year’s show will be the biggest ever Screwfix LIVE.

Now a regular event on Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre’s calendar, Screwfix LIVE 2017, will take place as work continues on Farnborough International’s new Hall One facility scheduled to open next spring.

Farnborough International’s venue director, Michael Watton, said: “We’re delighted to welcome back Screwfix LIVE in 2017 and greatly look forward to this year’s show. This is an exciting time for Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre as the buzz continues to grow around the opening of our new venue in 2018. Event organisers will find a full team of event professionals here at Farnborough and we look forward to welcoming many more regular, major trade and consumer shows in the coming years”.

Andrew Livingston, CEO of Screwfix, commented: “Screwfix LIVE is the ultimate show for everyone who loves to check out the latest products. Last year’s event was the biggest one to date, with more than 14,000 visitors attending and over 135 trade suppliers on show.  By increasing the size of this year’s Screwfix LIVE to over 9,500 square metres, we’re thrilled to be bringing together even more top suppliers, to make it the best Screwfix LIVE yet. We are delighted to return to Farnborough International for the 2017 show as the venue works really well for us in terms of size and flexibility.”

A free home improvement trade and DIY show, Screwfix LIVE 2017 takes place at Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre from September 29 – October 1, 2017.
