Howarth Timber and Building Supplies held its Trade Day at Elland Road in Leeds on 24 November, where exhibitors had the chance to meet more than 1,000 visitors from across the industry.

The event surpassed 2015's event as 75 brands arrived to showcase their latest products and offers, including VELUX, Stanley, Quick-Step, Trex and Keylite.

Delegates were treated to a complimentary breakfast before product experts and building specialists from around the UK carried out demonstrations and shared insights into the very latest industry developments.

The crowds took advantage of exclusive offers and deals, with 250 attendees going home with tickets for Leeds United's home match against Aston Villa after spending more than £200 with Howarth Timber.

Neale Brewster, marketing and product development manager at Howarth Timber, said: "In 2015 we were thrilled to have 50 exhibitors at the trade day, but this year's event has surpassed all our expectations with 75 firms in attendance.

"The trade day has gained recognition throughout the industry and to welcome so many respected companies and have them share their products and expertise gives us immense pride.

"The event was another roaring success and we would like to thank all the delegates – some of whom made long journeys to be there – for their enthusiastic attendance."
