A grand success!
markilux Australia at the Grand Designs Live show in Melbourne.

Following on from the huge success of the 2012 show, Grand Designs Live returned to the Melbourne Exhibition Centre on the weekend of October 25-27th. The show provides manufacturers an opportunity to exhibit their wares to discerning, high income consumers looking to create their own ‘Grand Design.’ Given the extraordinary amount of publicity leading up to the show, as well as star attractions Peter Maddison and Kevin McLeod it was no surprise that the show was very well attended across all three days.

2013 was the first year in which markilux Australia exhibited in its own right at the show, with a stand of approximately 40m2 on which a wide range of our products were displayed. Along with the entire markilux Australia team, we were lucky enough to have assistance on the stand from Germany as well as a number of our Melbourne-based retail partners.

Visitors to the markilux Australia stand were particular impressed by the fully accessorized markilux 6000, the strength of our vertical tensioned blinds and our wide range of colours and fabrics. During the three day event we distributed almost 4000 brochures and around 500 business cards to interested patrons. With a bit of luck these will translate into many sales and many happy customers in the months to come!
