Grand Designs on Apeer Doors - from L-R Pete Shears, Asa and Austin McGillian, Alex Moore and Linda TombApeer Doors has hailed its first ever mainland consumer show an outstanding success.

The company’s nine day appearance at Grand Designs Live (ExCeL, London, May 3 – 11) provided the perfect platform to raise brand awareness with consumers, as well as strengthen relationships with key London and Thames Valley customers.

Said UK sales manager Pete Shears, who led the Apeer team at the high profile show: “Although we have exhibited at a number of events throughout Ireland, this was our first consumer show in England and provided us with a fantastic opportunity to communicate directly with the end user and spend time with several of our customers.

“We saw a huge amount of people during the show – and got a very positive response: they really liked and appreciated what we had to offer. They particularly liked some of the eye-catching, contemporary colours and designs we used to attract them onto the stand in the first place. That then gave us the opportunity to talk them through all the many other benefits in terms of security and performance.”

The company showcased designs from its contemporary MODO collection along with two more traditional doors and its popular stable door. The stand also featured a ‘wall of colour’ showing Apeer’s range of 24 readily available fashionable colours.

Said Pete Shears: “The show gave us a chance to really get to know and better understand both our customers and end users and we have been rewarded with a good number of leads and appointments.”

Apeer is also taking part in Grand Designs Live, Birmingham (NEC, October 9 – 12) and has rebooked the London event for 2015.
