Fair in Kortrijk shifts position towards trade segment


For its 34th edition the trade show in Kortrijk, Belgium is assuming a new position and thus its third name. Originally launched as DIY, renamed DIY & Homing in 2008 and then DIY, Home & Garden in 2015, the fair is now called DIY-Pro-Garden and aims to cover the trade segment as well as DIY and garden retailers. This move is intended to take account of the fact that both the exhibitors represented at the show and the retailers have expanded their target group, according to a presentation at the show. More than 150 exhibitors have been announced, more than 4 000 visitors have registered in advance and seven DIY store groups and purchasing organisations aim to be present with 530 buyers, members and store managers. The French manufacturers' association Inoha and the Italian combine Buyer Point will appear for the first time in a dedicated pavilion. The fair (www.diy-pro-garden.be) will be held from 29 September to 1 October 2019 in the Kortrijk Expo trade fair venue.
