The former Totally DIY & Tools Show has been cancelled for 2018.
Here’s the full statement from the organisers:
“Following on from the news last Friday, it is with the deep regret that the organisers of The National DIY Show, formerly Totally DIY & Tools are announcing that the 2018 exhibition is being cancelled.
“The show has been a staple part of the DIY retail industry for over 23 years and helped launch many fledgling companies and personalities.
“The show was set to be held at the Ricoh Arena next June with new branding and a refreshed concept but due to the instability of the economic European road map, this very hard decision has had to be made.
“This is not to say the show won’t be back but for 2019 but the firm decision was made by the Brintex and Hemming Group Board to put the show on hold.
“The organisers would like to thank the industry associations who have shown support over the years especially Bheta who have supported the exhibition with a dedicated area and been a champion for the New Product Zone. The organisers would also like to say a big thank you to strong supporting partners Home Hardware, who have backed the show for many years and were fully on board for the new 2018 concept.”
