More than 30 exhibitors will showcase the best of the UK’s door, shutter and hardware industry at the Door & Hardware Federation’s first ever Conference and Expo on Thursday, September 28.
It will be held in Loughborough University’s Sir Denis Rooke Building, Holywell Park from 9am to 3pm. Entrance is free. A buffet lunch will be available to all prebooked visitors. To book, visitors should contact the DHF on 01827 52337.
There will be a huge variety of exhibitors, ranging from lockmakers to door security producers, who will be manning their stands throughout the day.
The DHF is confidently expecting a large turnout of visitors to the event.
