At the start of March, we attended KBB Birmingham 2020. The event features the largest collection of KBB brands all under one roof and is a key platform for us and the industry as a whole. It is a great opportunity to see the latest competitor products, get fresh ideas, make new connections and show off exactly who we are and the brilliant innovative products we have to offer the industry.
Despite issues around Coronavirus and many companies having to drop out, there was two record days of attendance, and a real buzz about the show floor.
For the fourth KBB in a row we were also short listed for the top 10Innovation Award for Wirquin NEO. After winning the award 3 times already we were trying to keep realistic about the chances of us being selected again, all the while knowing the strength of the Wirquin NEO. The award scheme recognises the most forward-thinking and technically advanced products within the KBB sector and is one of the most hotly anticipated events of the show.
The Wirquin NEO bottle trap scooped the Judge’s finalist prize for its user benefits; space saving, making it perfect for compact living, easy to install, the simple design and being cost effective.
This makes it our fourth time winning the Innovation award, proving Wirquin to be a real force to be reckoned with within the industry.
It was a great achievement for the company and team at the show and we look forward to KBB 2022, and hopefully our fifth win!
