From the 11th to the 13th of April this year, the Ideal Homes Exhibition took place in the RDS Simmonscourt in Dublin. The Ideal Homes is the top exhibition for home owners and potential homes owners with displays from Colortrend, Ireland's leading decorative paints brand, to Woodies DIY demonstrations and of course MyBlinds.ie :) The exhibition takes place twice a year, in April and October and boasts over 200 exhibitors.
The show also featured 'The Garden Room Extension' display. This display was a great way for consumers to see what could be done with a 40 square meter extension, which is the maximum size that a domestic dwelling can be extended, without needing planning permission. This space was designed by Caroline Flannery, owner of Level Design Solutions based in Dublin.
Myblinds last exhibited here in April 2012. It was MUCH busier this time round and proved hugely successful for us, with Brendan, Miriam, Gavin and Jenny being literally rushed off their feet for the three days. By Brendan's estimation they spoke to over a thousand people throughout the entire weekend. As you can see, our display's turned out great! As part of our display we showed our new roller blinds, roman blinds and vertical blinds ranges, also our new wooden venetian blinds ranges, "Antique" and "Designer". We also had our plantation shutter display, with 'perfect-fit' blinds behind the shutters, which proved hugely popular.
Next stop for us on the exhibition trail, is Bloom 2014 from the 29th of May to the 2nd of June in the Phoenix Park. We are going to have new and updated displays again for Bloom.
