Celebrating RCM’s largest exhibition stand to-date

Published:  03 April, 2018

RCM celebrates an exceptionally successful Ecobuild show in London with the largest RCM exhibition stand to-date.

The stand was built to a large extent from RCM’s very own Cemboard, a rigid, medium density, high-performance cement bonded particle building board. Complementing the grey colour of the Cemboard were colourful façades, both leading world brands, as well as RCM’s very own brands. The exhibition proved extremely successful for the complete through wall solutions provider

This year’s Ecobuild at ExCel held 6th – 8th March in London was well attended and drew a lot of interest from a wide audience. It is advertised as the number one event for forward thinkers in the built environment and featured the latest developments in the industry.

RCM’s presence, as a leading through wall solutions supplier proved an important addition to the already impressive exhibitor list.

A complete new 30 sqm exhibition stand, the largest RCM stand to-date, together with exciting new samples of the complete facades and building boards range underpinned RCM’s growing popularity as a trusted supplier of complete wall solutions to the industry. There was an impressive colourful display of RCM’s Supertech Weatherboard cladding, which was part wall-mounted and part sunk into the floor and covered by clear perspex, so it could be walked on.

Interested visitors were able to take small samples of RCM’s building boards and facades away with them on the day.

The stand was mostly built out of Cemboard, RCM’s rigid, medium density, high-performance cement bonded particle building board, ensuring that the actual product itself formed part of the exhibition stand, too. Colourful façade samples and RCM’s Supertech Weatherboard cladding truly stood out against the grey backdrop of the Cemboard.

Amy Baker, Marketing Manager RCM said: “Building such a large stand presents its own challenges. We used the space wisely and included a segregated meeting area, to sit down and talk. A louvre wall design feature separated the area to visitors and the grey Cemboard was accented throughout the stand with a red trim. We also used four rotating suspended modules demonstrating a different complete through wall solution on each side to give visitors a complete understanding of how the different components fit together. This was also a good opportunity to showcase Rockpanel, RCM’s latest addition to its growing portfolio.

"There were a further two suspended modules each showing a 60 minute fire-rated solution. One was an internal solution and the other one was an external solution. Both were set against a background of an impressive backlit fire feature.

"Our façade ranges were also shown. These added some exceptional colour to the stand, enhancing the overall visual display of RCM’s product range.”

Ian Quinton, Managing Director RCM said: “Judging by early results, the Ecobuild show promises to have been extremely successful for RCM. We’ve had numerous enquiries from existing and prospective customers and a lot of interest was shown in RCM’s products and services. Thank you to the team for arranging everything so well and also a warm Thank you to all our visitors who have made this show so great.”
