Hard Surfaces 2023

Who visits?

Hard Surfaces will attract both building professionals - architects, interior designers, consultants, conservators and developers/ clients ……and the Trade – wholesalers/ importers, kitchen/bathroom/ tile retailers and fabricators. Good representation is also expected from local authorities, central government and NGOs.

And because Hard Surfaces is co-locating with the Natural Stone Show, it already has an established core visitor profile that will be boosted further by extensive marketing activity in the months ahead.
